PennDOT District 6 says Route 611 (Easton Road) will be reduced to a single lane with flagging between Route 212 (Durham Road) and Durham Street in Durham Township, Bucks County 24/7 through June 2020, for construction related to a project to replace the bridge carrying Route 611 (Easton Road) over Cooks Creek.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because slowdowns will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
The work is part of a project to replace the Route 611 (Easton Road) over Cooks Creek with a single-span, pre-stressed, concrete bulb-tee beam bridge. The new structure will be 71 feet long, 50 feet wide and will include eight-foot shoulders.
The project scope also includes the reconstruction of the intersection of Route 611 (Easton Road) and Route 212 (Durham Road); improvements to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ adjacent parking lot; and removal of the previously abandoned, adjacent concrete arch bridge.
Built in 1958, the current bridge carrying Route 611 (Easton Road) over Cooks Creek is 32 feet wide, 72 feet long and carries an average of 5,500 vehicles per day.
The entire project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2020.
