PennDOT says construction is scheduled to begin on two township-owned bridges in Bucks County. The work is part of PennDOT’s $2.3 million project to rehabilitate five structurally deficient bridges – four township owned and one county owned – in Bucks County.
Crews will rehabilitate the Springfield Street bridge over SEPTA tracks in Springfield Township beginning Monday, June 13 and the Alden Avenue bridge over Rock Run in Falls Township starting Monday, June 20.
Springfield Street will be closed and detoured between Route 309 and East Station Road through September 2016 while crews replace the deteriorated bridge deck and beams. Motorists will be detoured over Route 309 and East Station Road.
Alden Road will be closed and detoured between Stevens Road and Valley Road through September 2016 for the replacement of the deteriorated bridge deck and beams. Motorists will follow the posted detour of Stevens Road, Gordon Road and Valley Road.
Local access will be maintained up to the construction zones. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas.
This local bridge improvement project was enabled through Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation plan.
In addition to the Springfield Street and Alden Road bridges, construction on the county-owned Kansas Road bridge over Little Neshaminy Creek in Warrington Township was completed Thursday, June 9.
Construction on the township-owned Willow Road bridge over Ironworks Creek in Northampton Township began on March 28, 2016 and work on the Moyer Road bridge over Pleasant Spring Creek in Hilltown Township began April 18, 2016.
