The scheduled restoration of the bridge carrying Route 420 (Kedron Avenue) over Stony Creek in Ridley Township, Delaware County, has been delayed until mid-September. The bridge was previously scheduled to be completed in late August. However, flooding at the bridge site has adversely affected the construction schedule.
Motorists will continue to be detoured around the bridge closure by way of Woodland Avenue, North Morton Avenue, South Morton Avenue, Morton Avenue and MacDade Boulevard until the new bridge opens.
In the event of more unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-214 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.
