alongside the construction zone with new information from penndot about this massive project. katy? >> yes, vai, it is a behemoth of a project right in the heart of center city. we're told by penndot, it will last until the fall of 2019. until then, expect more of this, more overnight expressway closures and detours around that work. but penndot says there's a big payoff. skyforce 10 was over the progress that's been made so far on the vine street expressway. this week, the road is closed from the broad street exit to the schuylkill expressway interchange in both directions from 11:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. that lasts until friday morning. that's the only time these construction crews can legally close the road. this week's work is specifically to install eight steel bridge beams that are needed for new bridges that will cross the vine street expressway. the old bridges date back to the 1950s and they're structurally outdated.
5:04 am
>> it was a type of construction method that was popular at that period of time, but now it's outdated. the new bridges will certainly provide decades of safe travel above the expressway. >> and of course our traffic reports every morning have been alerting you to the intermittent delays and detours of the vine street expressway, even though this specific work i talked about to install those eight steel beams, that lasts through friday morning. gene blum says to expect more overnight closures throughout the spring, summer and fall of this year. we'll keep you updated. reporting live in center city, katy zachry, nbc 10 news. we know the name but not the motive of the plan police say carried out several stabbing attacks in massachusetts. >> the suspect and two other people are dead. the attacks happened at two locations first at a home, then at a shopping mall about 40 miles south of boston. here's what we know. police say arthur derosa first
