Chester Pike Bridge Work headaches - two summers long

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has started
construction on a $3.2 million project to replace the bridge over the Stoney Creek on Chester Pike (route 13) between Taylor Hospital and the CVS Pharmacy.

The traffic plan is to close one lane from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in each direction on the bridge between Morton Avenue and Acres Drive, until the project’s completion in October 2011. The first phase is by Aqua PA to connect the water main. This phase also includes building a foot bridge over Stoney Creek on the West side of Taylor Hospital for employees to access the parking lot, and building an access to the bridge from Lou's Gulf Station. Additionally, an emergency access lane for Taylor Hospital will remain open for hospital use only.
The existing bridge, which was built in 1825 with additions made in the
early 1900’s, is a 62-foot long arch culvert structure with four total
travel lanes (two in each direction). It will be replaced with a
67-foot long, concrete arch culvert. The bridge is being replaced due
to age.

Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Pa. is the general contractor on the $3,188,254 project, which is financed with 80 percent federal and 20
percent state funds.

I walked to the CVS last week (Oct 7, 2011) and the finishing touches looks like it is being completed on schedule.

Great- it's only taking me 15 mins to get from Crum Lynne train station to the CVS. What's with these red lights all the time at every corner.
