Road Alert: Greenwood Ave Closure in Cheltenham for Spring and Summer-long Reconstruction

Greenwood Avenue Closure

PennDOT will be closing a section of Greenwood Avenue in Cheltenham this spring and summer to rebuild a small bridge over a branch of Rock Creek. The project will require traffic traveling between Rices Mill Road and Church Road to be detoured between Hedgerow Lane and Spruce Lane during the length of the rehabilitation project. 

Beginning Monday, March 25, through early September, Greenwood Avenue motorists will be directed to use Route 309 (Ogontz Avenue), Route 152 (Easton Road), and Route 73 (Church Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

Built in 1908, the Greenwood Avenue Bridge over a branch of Rock Creek is a single-span stone masonry arch structure, and carries an average of 9,128 vehicles a day. 

This structure is one of seven bridges in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties that PennDOT is repairing under a $7,220,000 bridge improvement project.
