Six-hour closure needed for bridge beam installation in Bucks County.

The closure is necessary for the protection of motorists and workers so crews can safely install new bridge beams at milepost 351.6.

Pennsylvania State Police and Turnpike personnel will be positioned at the impacted areas to assist drivers. Changeable message signs will also provide information on closures and detours.
