PennDOT Reopens Route 232 (Second Street Pike) Bridge In Wrightstown Township

PennDOT News, Road Work Updates | June 21st, 2018

PennDOT District 6 has reopened the bridge carrying Route 232 (Second Street Pike) over a branch of Mill Creek in Wrightstown Township, Bucks County.

Over the last eight weeks, PennDOT’s contractor worked to rehabilitate the stone masonry arch bridge by removing arch fill material and replacing it with lightweight concrete; reinforcing the walls and barrier; repointing masonry of the arch barrel and support abutments; and replacing guide rail.

Built in 1852, the one-span structure is 14 feet long, 40 feet wide, and carries an average of 5,802 vehicles a day. Following its rehabilitation, the bridge is no longer posted for weight ton restrictions.
