The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction will begin on Gallows Hill Road over Hollow Run in Durham Township, Bucks County, under a project to repair six bridges in Bucks and Chester counties that sustained damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida in September 2021.
The work schedule and location are:
- Monday, April 3, through late April, Gallows Hill Road will be closed between Lehnenberg Road and Valley View Road. During the closure, motorists are directed to use Route 212 (Durham Road), Route 412 (Main Street), and Lehnenberg Road. Built in 1930, the 27-foot-wide structure carries an average of 863 vehicles a day.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. The schedule is weather dependent.
This work is one of six structures that PennDOT’s contractor will repair and reinforce the support systems and foundations of the structures to maintain them as safe and efficient crossings for the traveling public.
Structures completed under this project include:
- Pennock Bridge Road over Branch of White Clay Creek, New London Township, Chester County;
- Yellow Springs Road bridge over branch of Pine Creek in West Pikeland Township, Chester County; and
- Pikeland Road over Branch of Pickering Creek, Charlestown Township, Chester County.
Other structures scheduled for rehabilitation include the following:
- Route 232 (Second Street Pike) over Neshaminy Creek, Northampton and Wrightstown townships, Bucks County; and
- Route 926 (Street Road) over Branch of White Clay Creek, West Marlborough Township, Chester County.
Loftus Construction, Inc. of Cinnaminson, NJ, is the general contractor on the $815,000 bridge rehabilitation project, which is financed with 100 percent state funds.
