PennDOT Reopens Bristol Road Bridge in New Britain Township


King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has reopened the bridge carrying Bristol Road over Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County, following the completion of a rehabilitation project.

PennDOT’s contractor repaired joints at both piers; performed hydro scarification of bridge deck and latex modified concrete surface repairs; paved at both approaches; and placed pavement markings on the new bridge deck and roadway.
Built in 1967, the Bristol Road bridge over Neshaminy Creek is 155 feet long and 44 feet wide, which carries an average of 7,994 vehicles a day. 
The structure is one of nine bridges in Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery counties that PennDOT is repairing under a $4,475,284 project financed with 100 percent state funds.

Structures completed under this project include:
  • Stonybrook Road over Jericho Creek in Upper Makefield Township, Bucks County;  
  • South Sugan Road over Aquetong Creek in New Hope Borough, Bucks County; 
  • Route 563 (Mountain View Drive) over Saw Mill Road in Haycock Township, Bucks County;
  • Big Oak Road over I-295 in Middletown Township, Bucks County; 
  • Park Road over U.S. 1 in West Nottingham Township, Chester County; and
  • Cat Hill Road over Perkiomen Creek in West Rockhill Township, Bucks County.
The other structures included in this bridge rehabilitation project include:
  • Route 252 (Bear Hill Road) over Norfolk Southern Railroad in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County; and 
  • Morris Road over SEPTA in Whitpain Township, Montgomery County.
Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on the bridge improvement project. Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
