CONCORD TOWNSHIP, PA — Construction is expected to begin on Monday, October 2, on a $1.7 million Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) project to replace the bridge that carries Smithbridge Road over Webb Creek in Concord Township, Delaware County.
The 96-year-old bridge, closed since July 14, 2023, due to structural deterioration and storm damage, will be replaced by PennDOT’s contractor with a new concrete box culvert. Motorists are advised to follow the existing detour during construction.
Drivers should allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays may occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Road-Con Inc. of West Chester, Chester County, is the general contractor on this bridge replacement project, which is financed with 100% state funds. Construction on the entire project is expected to finish in April 2024.
