PENNDOT has notified Penn that the Chestnut Street Bridge will close for renovation August 5. The bridge will be closed to ALL TRAFFIC, including pedestrians, bicycles and cars, for approximately one year.
The closure will result in many changes to traffic patterns, signs and signals, along with volume and detours near campus. Commuters should anticipate traffic congestion and travel delays. Please adjust your commute accordingly.
