Main Street to be Closed for Two Weeks While Low Bridge is Raised

North Main Street, presumably between the Foundry and High Street, will be closed for two weeks while the railroad bridge that crosses it is raised. The construction is all part of the preliminary steps being taken to allow for the Gay Street Bridge to be brought down and rebuilt.

The new time line for the start of construction on the Gay Street Bridge is mid-March to mid-April. Considering that street lights need to be installed at High and Main as well as some work PECO will need to do, my guess is that the April estimate is a more accurate one.

On the topic of Construction: Does anyone know what they're building across from the new Rite Aid (aka:the OLD Eckerd)?! I don't recall anyone saying anything about it, but it looks like it has a drive-through, whatever it is!

Can't wait both of these bridges are removed. They're so ugly. Here's to hoping the Gay St. bridge won't have silly blue lamposts on it. But to match the downtown, blue may be the way to go.

What they're building at Nutt Road and 113, I heard, will be another pharmacy. Whether it is a Rite Aid, CVS, or Eckerd ... I don't know. Rumor has it that a Wawa will be built next door similar to the one being built in Collegeville. But an inside source I have at Wawa does not know if they are planning another one in Phoenixville at that site yet.

Too bad they didn't remove the railroad bridge a little earlier. This morning there was a garbage truck that got stuck underneath.

Be aware they are NOT removing the railroad bridge just tempoarily raising it higher so the borough ladder truck from the Church St. Fire House can still get to the North side when the Gay St. Bridge is demolished. Once the new bridge is completed, the railroad bridge will be lowered to it's existing position.
