PennDOT District 6 says the bridge carrying California Road over a branch of Tohickon Creek in Richland Township, Bucks County is scheduled to close for repairs on Monday, January 17, after undermining of the bridge abutment, caused by Hurricane Ida, was discovered during a bridge inspection. The closure will remain in place until mid-February.
During the closure, California Road motorists will be directed to use Cherry Road, Route 309, and Station Road. Local access will be maintained up to the work zone.
Built in 1915, the California Road Bridge carries an average of 2921 vehicles across the 22-foot-long, 22-foot-wide structure daily.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
