Hearing Set on Closing Bridge in Erie over CSX

A hearing has been set for Oct. 25 in Erie, Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation on a proposal to remove the McBride Viaduct over the CSX Erie West Subdivision tracks between East 12th and East 19th streets.

The bridge was built in 1938 and has been deemed to be structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.

PennDOT said it plans to remove the 1,170-foot bridge and all piers, steps and ramps. Fencing would be installed to prohibit pedestrians from crossing the tracks.
