County Line Road To Close For Bridge Repair In Warrington

PennDOT News, Road Work Updates | March 16th, 2016

County Line Road will be closed and detoured between Fairmont Avenue and Park Road in Warrington Township, Bucks County and Horsham Township, Montgomery County starting Monday, March 28 through Friday, April 8 for structural repairs to the bridge over a branch of Little Neshaminy Creek.

PennDOT says during construction, County Line Road through traffic will be detoured over Lower State Road, Street Road, and Route 611 (Easton Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.

Crews from PennDOT’s Bucks County Maintenance Unit will repair the stone-arch bridge by reinforcing the arch and wing walls with concrete, and by replacing stones, resetting dislocated stones, and applying new mortar.

The signal-span, stone masonry arch bridge was built in 1890 and reconstructed in 1962. The bridge is structurally deficient. It is 15-feet long and 26-feet wide. The structure carries 14,169 vehicles a day. The bridge will be posted with a 10-ton weight limit when it reopens to traffic .
