PennDOT has announced that the newly rehabilitated township-owned Springfield Street bridge over SEPTA tracks in Springfield Township, Bucks County reopened to traffic on September 9.
The Springfield Street bridge was part of PennDOT’s $2.3 million project to rehabilitate five structurally deficient bridges – four township owned and one county owned – in Bucks County.
Construction began on June 13, 2016 to replace the bridge’s deteriorated deck and beams. The Springfield Street bridge is a single-span, prestressed adjacent box beam bridge built in 1985. It is 72 feet long and 45 feet wide. It carries 150 vehicles a day.
This local bridge improvement project was enabled through Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation plan.
