PENNDOT UPDATE: Wolf Administration Announces Darby Paoli Road to be Closed


The Wolf Administration announced today that construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 13, on a project to replace two bridges that carry Darby-Paoli Road over Little Darby Creek and Wigwam Run in Radnor Township, Delaware County.

“These bridge replacements are crucial to the Radnor Township community and will ensure a safer commute for motorists traveling over these structures for years to come,” said Governor Tom Wolf.

On Monday, January 13, Darby Paoli Road will close between Newtown Road and Godfrey Road in Radnor Township, Delaware County, through early May, for construction of the Wigwam Run structure. During the closure, Darby Paoli Road motorists will be detoured over Goshen Road, Route 252 (Newtown Street Road) and St. David’s Road.

After completion of the Wigwam Run structure, Darby-Paoli Road will be closed between Brooke Road and Newtown Road for construction of the Little Darby Creek structure. 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 construction zones during the entire length of construction. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work areas because slowdowns will occur.

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.

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.

Richard E. Pierson Construction Co., Inc., of Woodstown, NJ is the general contractor on the $2,369,504 project which is financed with 100 percent federal funds.

The entire project is expected to be completed in fall of 2020.

Rich Diguglielmo will be the contact for the project at
