PennDOT Reopens Pocopson Road Bridge over Pocopson Creek

King of Prussia, PA - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) reopened the bridge carrying Pocopson Road over Pocopson Creek in Pennsbury and Pocopson townships, Chester County, today following the completion of a rehabilitation project.

Over the last six weeks, PennDOT's contractor worked to rehabilitate the bridge by removing and rebuilding three of the four wingwalls and performing other miscellaneous repairs on the structure.

Built in 1929, the single-span concrete encased steel I-beam bridge is 32 feet long, 20 feet wide and carries an average of 1,685 vehicles a day.

This bridge improvement project was performed under PennDOT's $11,766,000 project to rehabilitate 10 structurally-deficient bridges in Bucks, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, and replace six structurally-deficient culverts in Bucks, Chester and Delaware counties.
