Construction is scheduled to begin the week of April 11 to replace the Birmingham Road bridge over Radley Run in Birmingham Township, Chester County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said today. The new bridge is scheduled to open in August.
The Birmingham Road bridge has been closed to motorists since September 22, 2015, due to severe structural damage. The bridge is located between the intersections of Lambourne Road and Stoney Run Drive. During the bridge closure, Birmingham Road through traffic is detoured over Route 52 (Lenape Road), Creek Road and Route 926 (Street Road). Local access is maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.
PennDOT will remove the old bridge and construct a new, cast-in-place concrete bridge. The new one-span structrure will be 18 feet long and 24 feet wide. It will carry one travel lane in each direction. The existing one-span, steel-beam bridge was built in 1938. It is 15 feet long and 26 feet wide. The structure was posted with a 18-ton weight limit and carried an average of 3,553 vehicles a day when it closed. Loftus Construction, Inc., of Cinnaminson, N.J. is the general contractor on the $500,000 project that is funded with 100 state funds.
