Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, April 18 to rehabilitate the township-owned Moyer Road bridge over Pleasant Spring Creek in Hilltown Township, Bucks County.
Moyer Road will be closed and detoured between South Perkasie Road and Route 113 (Souderton Road) from Monday, April 18 through July 2016 while crews replace the deteriorated bridge deck and beams.
During construction, Moyer Road through traffic will be detoured over South Perkasie Road, Callowhill Road and Route 113 (West Main Street). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.
PennDOT says the improvement of the Moyer Road bridge is part of a $2.3 million project to rehabilitate five structurally deficient bridges – four township owned and one county owned – in Bucks County. This local bridge improvement project was enabled through Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation plan.
The single-span, prestressed adjacent box beam bridge was built in 1975. It is 30 feet long and 33 feet wide. It carries 200 vehicles a day. The bridge is posted with an 16-ton weight limit.
