Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, March 16, on a project to rehabilitate the bridge carrying Route 841 (Chatham Road) Bridge over Doe Run in West Marlborough Township, Chester County, announced the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
Due to the nature of construction, Chatham Road will be closed and detoured between Springdell Road and Route 82 (Doe Run Road) through the length of the rehabilitation project. Beginning Monday, March 16, through late April, Chatham Road motorists will be directed to use Route 841 South (Chatham Road), Route 842 East (Clonmell Upland Road), and Route 82 North (Doe Run Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.
PennDOT’s contractor will rehabilitate the bridge with repairs that include encasing the beam ends and sections of the open steel grid deck in reinforced concrete.
Built in 1932, and reconstructed in 1974, the bridge is 81 feet long and 23 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 502 vehicles a day.
Structures completed under this project include:
- Route 313 (Dublin Pike/Swamp Road) over Deep Run in Hilltown and Bedminster townships, Bucks County;
- Butler Avenue over branch of Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County;
- Pughtown Road over French Creek in East Vincent Township, Chester County; and
- Route 896 (Newark Road) over Muddy Creek in Upper Oxford Township, Chester County.
The other structures included in this bridge rehabilitation project include the following:
- Route 926 (Street Road) over Radley Run in Westtown and Thornbury townships, Chester County; and
- Two Green Valley Road structures over tributary of Brandywine Creek in Newlin Township, Chester County.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
C. Abbonzino Contractors, Inc. of Sewell, N.J., is the general contractor on this $4,245,232 bridge improvement project that is financed with 100 percent state funds.
