King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today reopened the bridge carrying Butler Avenue over Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County, following the completion of a rehabilitation project.
PennDOT’s contractor replaced the existing structure with a concrete box culvert; milled and paved the roadway; installed impact attenuators; and replaced the guiderail.
Built in 1939 and reconstructed in 1963, the single-span bridge is 18 feet long and 38 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 12,359 vehicles a day.
This structure is one of five bridges in Bucks and Chester counties that PennDOT is repairing under a $4,040,779 bridge improvement project.
Structure completed under this project include:
- Route 313 (Dublin Pike/Swamp Road) over Deep Run in Hilltown and Bedminster townships, Bucks County.
The other structures included in this bridge rehabilitation project include the following:
- Route 926 (Street Road) over Radley Run in Westtown and Thornbury townships, Chester County; and
- Two Green Valley Road structures over tributary of Brandywine Creek in Newlin Township, Chester County.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
C. Abbonzino Contractors, Inc. of Sewell, N.J., is the general contractor on this bridge improvement project that is financed with 100 percent state funds.
