Two roads in Lower Bucks to close for bridge work


Trenton Road in Fairless Hills and Bordentown Road in Tullytown and Falls Township will be closed starting Monday for reconstruction of two bridges, PennDOT reported Wednesday.

Trenton Road will be closed between Queen Ann Drive and Canterbury Road for a bridge over a branch of Queen Ann Creek to be rebuilt. Local access will be maintained, but traffic will be detoured to Oxford Valley, New Falls and Tyburn roads.

The two-lane bridge, which carries 10,264 vehicles a day, is expected to reopen in mid-November.

On the second project, Bordentown Road will be closed between Main Street in Tullytown and New Ford Mill Road in Falls Township for work on a bridge over Van Sciver Lake. The bridge, which carries 2,373 vehicles a day is expected to reopen in February.

Traffic will be detoured to Bristol Pike, Tyburn Road and New Ford Mill Road, but local access will be maintained.
