Thanks Don for all of your help on these 2 bridges.Like i told Dana And Kay i can't believe they're replacing the bridge on the Northeast Extension.

George;

It seems that I was wrong about the Beaver River bridge. That is not the weekend replacement project.

The weekend replacement is a 1951 box beam over Brush Creek at milepost 20.47.

Thanks Don for answering that question about the Beaver County bridge being replaced.Now if i could only just find out which bridge on the Northeast Extension around Allentown is being replaced then both questions will be answered.

This is the bridge George mentioned that is being replaced, near exit 13 (milepost T13.21). Also, 3 overpasses and a culvert are being or have been replaced between mile 12 and mile 14.
