The Ashmead Road Bridge is scheduled to be closed this morning at 9:00 AM. The bridge is being replaced with a new structure.
A statement from the Cheltenham Township Police Department:
“Hello neighbors, the closure…[this morning] of the Ashmead Road bridge over the Tookany Creek is going to cause quite a traffic mess in the Cheltenham Village area. We highly suggest that if you can plan a traffic route avoiding that area for the next 9 months, it would be in your best interest. If you live in the Village, please be patient, the work and detour are unavoidable. We will do our best to keep an eye on issues as they come up. Thanks, drive safe.”
