STREETS DEPARTMENT CLOSES MARGIE STREET BRIDGE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

PHILADELPHIA - Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams has announced today that the Margie Street Bridge between Glenwood Avenue and Sedgley Street has been closed effective immediately, because structural damage was found during a routine inspection by the Streets Department. 

The bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic until further notice. Engineers have determined that the bridge remains safe for pedestrians and bicyclists, so they will be permitted to cross. The posted vehicular detour route will utilize 18th Street and Lehigh Avenue in the northbound direction and 22nd Street in the southbound direction.

The Streets Department thanks citizens in advance for their patience and cooperation during this closure. It is our goal to have the bridge opened as soon as possible.
