Demolition of the Conrail bridge will close parts of Interstate 71 next weekend.

The northbound lanes between the Reading Road and Dana Avenue exits will be closed beginning at 10:00 p.m. Friday and continue through 6:00 a.m. Monday, April 20. Traffic will be detoured to northbound I-75 to eastbound SR 562 to I-71.

Work to dismantle the bridge will also close the left lane of southbound I-71 between the Taft and Dana Avenue exits.

During this weekend closure, the following exits to northbound I-71 will be closed: I-471, Second Street, Fifth Street, Gilbert/Reading and McMillan. Detours will be signed.

To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.?
