NEW CASTLE —
A $1.1 million bridge replacement project on Route 65 in Wayne Township is expected to be completed Friday.
According to state Rep. Jaret Gibbons, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said it believes the project will be finished ahead of the original July 1 estimate.
Gibbons noted that the bridge will be done in time to accommodate the Ellwood City Arts, Crafts and Food Festival, which begins Friday and runs through Sunday at Ewing Park.
The bridge opening means people attending the festival will not have to endure lengthy detours, Gibbons said.
