BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Construction is expected to begin on the Route 232 (Second Street Pike) bridge over Neshaminy Creek in Northampton and Wrightstown townships, Bucks County, under a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) project to repair six bridges in Bucks and Chester counties that sustained damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida in September 2021.
On Wednesday, September 13, through early October, weekday periodic 15-minute lane closures will take place on Route 232 (Second Street Pike) between Swamp Road and Twining Road.
Motorists are being advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays may occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
PennDOT’s contractor will repair and reinforce six structures, ensuring safe and efficient crossings. Gallows Hill Road, Pennock Bridge Road, Yellow Springs Road, and Pikeland Road bridges are completed. Route 926 is scheduled for rehabilitation.
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.
