PennDOT to Begin Rehabilitation of Butler Avenue Bridge over Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County
King of Prussia, PA – Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, June 17, on a project to rehabilitate the bridge carrying Butler Avenue over a branch of Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Due to the nature of construction, Butler Avenue will be closed and detoured between Brittany Drive and Surrey Road through the length of the rehabilitation project. Beginning Monday, June 17, through late August, Butler Avenue motorists will be directed to use Route 152 (Limekiln Pike), U.S. 202, and County Line Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.
PennDOT’s contractor will rehabilitate the bridge by replacing the existing structure with a concrete box culvert; milling and paving the roadway; installing impact attenuators; and replacing the guiderail.
Built in 1939 and reconstructed in 1963, the single-span bridge is 18 feet long and 38 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 12,359 vehicles a day.
Structure currently under construction include:Route 313 (Dublin Pike/Swamp Road) over Deep Run in Hilltown Township, Bucks County.
Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
