The new Huntley Rd. bridge over Interstate 90 in Springfield Township, Erie County is expected to reopen Friday, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The former steel, I-beam bridge was closed and demolished in April because the structure was functionally obsolete.

It was replaced with a new concrete bridge, which has a higher clearance height for eastbound and westbound traffic on I-90. The bridge is used by an average of 150 vehicles daily.

The replacement project is part of a two-year, $37.6 million project to rebuild or repave more than 11 miles of I-90 in western Erie County. Preservation was done this year from mile marker 10 to mile marker 18 in Girard and Fairview townships. Work slated for the 2020 construction season includes the reconstruction 3.5 miles of I-90 – extending from the Ohio/Pennsylvania state line to the Route 6N exits in Springfield Township.
