The bridge carrying Springton Road over Indian Run in Wallace Township, Chester County will close later today due to advanced deterioration of a bridge beam discovered during a recent bridge inspection, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
During the closure, Springton Road motorists will be directed to use Route 282 (Creek Road), Fairview Road and Indiantown Road. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area. All local access will be maintained during the closure.
Construction to rehabilitate the 82-year-old single-span steel girder bridge is scheduled to begin later this year under a $5 million project to repair or replace five bridges in Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties.
The Springton Road bridge is 32 feet long and 23 feet wide. The structure, which is currently posted for 3 tons, carries approximately 533 vehicles a day.
