Brandywine Creek bridge in Chesco to be replaced


Brandywine Creek bridge to be replaced

WEST BRADFORD State Department of Transportation crews will close lanes to replace a structurally deficient bridge over the Brandywine Creek over the coming weeks, the department said in a news release.

The construction will cause Route 322 to be reduced to a single lane between Sugars Bridge Road and Skelp Level Road in West Bradford and East Bradford Townships from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Monday and July 11.

There will be no work on July 3 and 4 due to the holiday.

The construction is part of a $4.7 million project to replace the Route 322 bridge over the Brandywine Creek, which is one of 5,200 bridges in the state classified as structurally deficient, according to an analysis by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association.

Pennsylvania, which has 22,600 bridges, leads the nation in the number of bridges classified as structurally deficient.

The new Route 322 bridge is scheduled to open in September. - Tricia L. Nadolny
