PennDOT Announces Reopening of Route 162 Bridge


NEWLIN TWP, PA — After making repairs to damage caused by remnants of Hurricane Ida, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that the Route 162 (Embreeville Road) bridge in Newlin Township, Chester County has reopened.

PennDOT’s contractor replaced the 99-year-old bridge’s closed spandrel arch span with a precast concrete arch. The reinforced concrete retaining walls adjacent to the arch were also replaced. The two larger, open spandrel concrete arch spans did not need to be repaired.
