Parryville, PA: Implosion of Old I-476 Bridge

Posted by Content Coordinator on Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

On May 10, 2012, the last remaining truss of the old Pennsylvania Turnpike bridge imploded as the new bridge structure remained standing in the background. The old bridge, erected in 1957 over the Pohopoco Creek in Parryville, Pennsylvania, was deemed structurally deficient. Four new prestressed concrete beam bridges were opened to traffic on November 4, 2011. Click on the link to learn more about the project: on YouTube.
