Nearby: River Road Bridge Reopened
Penn DOT announced it has reopened Route 32 (River Road) over a branch of the Delaware River between Lurgan Road and Barlow Ridge Road in Upper Makefield Township, following the completion of a bridge rehabilitation due to severe undermining of the stone masonry support abutments resulting from storm damage in September.
PennDOT’s contractor, Loftus Construction, Inc. of Cinnaminson, New Jersey, stabilized, reinforced, and underpinned the ground beneath the support abutments so the bridge could reopen to vehicular traffic
Access to the bridge has been blocked since September 23
The Route 32 (River Road) bridge was built in 1870. The single-span, stone masonry arch bridge is 12 feet long, 28 feet wide and carries approximately 6,370 vehicles per day.
