The Vine Street Expressway near Logan Square.

Bridge construction will force the Vine Street Expressway to shut down overnight for two weeks, starting Monday night.

PennDOT announced that both directions on Interstate 676 will be closed between the Interstate 76 and Broad Street interchanges. The closures will be in effect this week Monday through Thursday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. and next week Monday and Tuesday from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Road crews will remove the bridges that hang over the highway on 21st and 22nd streets.

The work is part of the four-year, $64.8 million project that started in April 2015 to replace seven structurally deficient bridges between 18th and 22nd streets. The project is slated to be finished in November 2018, a year ahead of schedule.

The work is weather-dependent.

PennDOT has provided a list of detours on its website.
