UPPER MAKEFIELD, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction to replace the Lurgan Road bridge over Branch of Pidcock Creek will start on Monday, July 15. The bridge, built in 1910, will be replaced with a modern concrete box culvert.

From July 15 through late November, Lurgan Road will be closed around the clock between Eagle Road and Street Road. Motorists are advised to use Route 32 (River Road), Route 232 (Windy Bush Road), and Street Road for detours. Local access will be maintained, but drivers should plan for extra travel time due to expected backups and delays.

The existing bridge is a 16-foot-long, 23-foot-wide single-span structure that carries an average of 971 vehicles per day. Its replacement is part of a larger $7,987,000 project to rehabilitate or replace seven structures in Bucks and Montgomery counties.

All scheduled activities are weather dependent. This project reflects PennDOT’s commitment to maintaining and improving the region’s infrastructure to ensure public safety and efficient transportation.
