PennDOT District 6 says construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 24, on a project to replace the culvert carrying Richland Pike over Cooks Creek in Springfield Township, Bucks County.
Due to the nature of construction, Richland Pike will be closed and detoured 24/7 between Quarry Road and State Road beginning Monday, May 24, through the completion of the project scheduled for early October.
During the closure, Richland Pike motorists will be directed to use State Road, Route 212 (Quakertown Road) and California Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.
Built in 1985, the current structure will be replaced with a new box culvert and carries an average of 3,088 vehicles a day.
