GREENE TWP., Pa. (WKBN) – Work kicks off Monday to rehab a 95-year-old bridge in Greene Township, in Mercer County.

The bridge is located on State Route 58 near the intersection of Shine Road.

The project will include the removal and reconstruction of the top portion of the bridge.

Work is supposed to start Monday and last until the end of September.

The detour will be posted using Route 322 and Route 18.
