Commuter Alert
Two-Year Bridge Repairs Will Affect Traffic:

The University Avenue Bridge (Scuylkill River at 34th Street) is being reduced this week to two lanes each way, and for the next two years commuters using that route are advised to expect "signifi cant traffic delays." A belatedly-received news release from PennDOT, describing the $5.8 million repair project that started October 27, has been posted on the web by the University's Department of Transportation at http://www.upenn.edu/transportation. Commuter alert links are also being set up also with SEPTA and PennDOT.
