This spring, PennDOT will begin a major bridge reconstruction project in Lower Southampton that will take up to 18 months to complete.
PennDOT will be tearing down and replacing the Maple Avenue Bridge (Route 213) over the Neshaminy Creek.
According to a notice from PennDOT on the township website, this bridge, which is located on the border of Lower Southampton Township and Middletown Township, has "reached the end of its useful life and is in need of replacement before further deterioration adversely affects traffic flow across this important state route."
This bridge project will require the road to be closed throughout the reconstruction. The anticipated detour route will use Bristol Road, Brownsville Road and Old Lincoln Highway.
PennDOT representatives and the consultant designer will be at the Tuesday, February 28 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to discuss the project and answer questions.
