PennDOT says lane restrictions with flagging are scheduled on Main Street between Park Avenue and Elm Street in Sellersville Borough, Bucks County on Thursday, May 24, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM to midnight for bridge beam construction as part of the project to replace the three-span bridge carrying Main Street over Perkiomen Creek.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area because slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
During construction, the bridge remains open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic as the contractor builds the new structure. However, there will be additional periods of lane restrictions with flagging.
In mid-summer, traffic will be shifted onto the new first half of the bridge while the other half is constructed.
PennDOT’s contractor will replace the current bridge with a new two-span, pre-stressed, concrete bulb-tee beam bridge. The project scope includes the installation of eight-foot sidewalks on both sides; resurfacing of the bridge approaches; and performing safety upgrades and other miscellaneous construction. The new structure will be 56 feet wide and 153 feet long.
