Chapel Road Bridge repair prompts road closure

Interstate 470 eastbound will be closed today and Thursday each night from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. between Exit 2 and the Interstate 70 junction to allow for Kokosing Construction Company to work on the Chapel Road Bridge over I-470 in Bethlehem.

A detour will be posted. Motorists are advised to be alert for changing traffic patterns and expect delays. Inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances could change the project schedule. Meanwhile, I-70 westbound will be reduced to one lane at mile marker 7.0 today through Thursday.

This lane closure will occur each night from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. and is necessary for crews to install traffic sensors in the roadway.
