Darby-Paoli Road Bridge Replacements

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (Penn DOT) will be replacing two culverts on Darby-Paoli Road: (1) the bridge over Little Darby Creek (by the entrance to the Willows, near Brooke Road), (2) the bridge over Wigwam Run (near Saw Mill Road).  The first phase of the project entails utility relocation work, which will begin this summer and be completed in early 2020. The bridge work is to start in early 2020 and be completed by the fall of 2020. Only one bridge will be worked on at one time, and local access will be maintained up to the work zone. The bridge construction will begin in 2020 as follows:

Bridge over Wigwam Run (by Saw Mill Road)

  • Darby Paoli Road closed between Newtown Road and Godfrey Road
  • The detour streets will be Church Road, St. Davids Road, Route 252, and Goshen Road

Bridge over Little Darby Creek (by the Willows)

  • Darby Paoli Road will be closed between Brooke Road and Newtown Road
  • The detour streets will be Church Road, St. David’s Road, Route 252, and Goshen Road

Dear Mr. Zienkowski:

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has awarded a $2,369,504 contract to Richard E. Pierson Construction Co., Inc., of Woodstown, NJ to replace two bridges that carry Darby-Paoli Road over Little Darby Creek and Wigwam Run in Radnor Township, Delaware County.

This project was driven by the need to replace both bridges that are rated in fair condition. Originally built circa 1905 and 1935, improvements are needed to enhance the safety and operations of the two bridges because of their age and state of deterioration. 

The new structures will provide a long-term transportation facility that is structurally sound, capable of handling the volume of expected traffic along this state highway and improve the safety of motorists and pedestrians. The bridges will not be built simultaneously. 

For the bridge over Wigwam Run, the new structure will be a single cell 8-foot by 6-foot reinforced box culvert. The new span over Little Darby Creek will be a single cell 20-foot by 12- foot reinforced box culvert. The new structures will carry 12-foot lanes and four-foot shoulders. The walls on both bridges will be adorned with natural stone facing.

During construction, Darby-Paoli Road will be closed and detoured in two stages. For the first stage, during construction of the Wigwam Run structure, Darby-Paoli Road will be closed to through traffic between Newtown Road and Godfrey Road. The posted detour will use Church Road, St. David's Road, Route 252 (Newtown Street Road) and Goshen Road.

For the second stage, during construction of the Little Darby Creek structure, Darby-Paoli Road will be closed to through traffic between Brooke Road and Newtown Road. The posted detour will use Church Road, St. David's Road, Route 252 (Newtown Street Road) and Goshen Road.

Local access will be maintained up to the work zone during the entire length of construction, including the southern entrance to The Willows Park.

The closure of Darby-Paoli Road for construction will occur after the completion of required utility relocation work, which is expected to start in the summer of 2019 and continue through into early 2020.

Bridge construction is expected to begin in early 2020 and finish in the fall of 2020. This bridge replacement project is financed with 100 percent federal funds.

Thank you for your interest and support of this important bridge improvement project in Delaware County.

Sincerely,

Kenneth M. McClain
