Main Street, Linfield-Bridge Closure

Main Street Bridge

Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, February 18, on a project to rehabilitate the bridge carrying Main Street over Norfolk Southern Railroad in Limerick Township, Montgomery County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. Due to the nature of the repairs, Main Street will be closed and detoured between Reformed Road and Pennhurst Road through the completion of the project scheduled for late June. During the bridge closure, Main Street motorists will be directed to use Linfield Road, Route 724 (Schuylkill Road), Bridge Street, Main Street, and Lewis Road.Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area because slowdowns will occur. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

As part of this bridge improvement project, PennDOT’s contractor will remove and replace the existing parapet, bridge deck, sidewalk and protective fencing, as well as perform abutment repairs and pave bridge approaches. Built in 1968, the single-span steel beam bridge is 117 feet long and 44 feet wide. The structure carries about of 5,681 vehicles a day.

Any concerns regarding the project please contact the Bridge Division of PennDOT: 610-205-6661.
