WEST MARLBOROUGH TOWNSHIP, PA — Construction is expected to begin on the Route 926 (Street Road) bridge over Branch of White Clay Creek in West Marlborough Township, Chester 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 Monday, October 9, through Friday, October 20, Route 926 (Street Road) will be closed 24/7 between Stroud Lane and Newark Road. During the closure, motorists are directed to use Newark Road, Route 82 (Clonmell Upland Road), and Route 841 (North Chatham Road/Coatesville Road).

Local access will be maintained. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.

Built in 1938, the 26-foot-wide structure carries an average of 1,612 vehicles per day.

PennDOT’s contractor is set to repair and reinforce six structures to ensure safe and efficient crossings for the public. These structures include Gallows Hill Road, Pennock Bridge Road, Yellow Springs Road, Pikeland Road, and Route 232.

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.
