Motorists travelling along the bridge carrying Pennsylvania Avenue (Route 2027) over Sandy Run in Springfield Township, Montgomery County, should anticipate traffic pattern changes later this month as work continues as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
During the week of September 17, vehicular traffic – including cars, small trucks, school buses and emergency vehicles – will crossover from the existing bridge to a temporary roadway. Vehicles will be maintained in both directions on the temporary bridge while crews construct the new bridge.   However, oversized tractor trailers will be directed to follow a truck detour around Pennsylvania Avenue by way of Easton Road, Jenkintown Road (Route 2021), Route 152 (Limekiln Pike), Susquehanna Road (Route 2017), Virginia Drive (Route 2024), Delaware Drive and Commerce Drive.
The Pennsylvania Avenue bridge averages over 12,800 daily vehicles. Built in 1927, the single-span concrete, T-beam bridge will be replaced with a new single-span box beam bridge. Replacement work will be performed by Walsh Construction II of Chicago, IL. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2018.
This bridge is referred to as JV-217 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
