PennDOT to Begin Project to Rehabilitate Three Bryn Mawr Avenue Bridges in Radnor Township

PennDOT

King of Prussia, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that construction will begin next week to rehabilitate three bridges that carry Bryn Mawr Avenue over Meadowbrook Run and Doom Run in Radnor Township, Delaware County.

The three bridges include:

  • Bryn Mawr Avenue over Meadowbrook Run. The bridge is 12 feet long, 29 feet wide and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places;
  • Bryn Mawr Avenue over a tributary to Meadowbrook Run. The structure is 8 feet long and 30 feet wide; and
  • Bryn Mawr Avenue over Doom Run. The bridge is 12 feet long and 36 feet wide.

All three structures were built in 1905 and currently carry an average of 10,515 vehicles a day.

PennDOT’s contractor will rehabilitate the masonry arch structures by repairing the stone masonry abutment, dismantling the parapets, pouring slab and concrete parapet core, facing the core wall with the existing brick and concrete cap to match the existing appearance, paving roadway, and installing pavement markings and signs.

Beginning Monday, February 24, through late June, Bryn Mawr Avenue will be reduced to a single lane 24/7 between Mill Road and Wootton Road under Stage 1 construction to repair the Bryn Mawr Avenue structures over Meadowbrook Run. Traffic will be controlled by a temporary traffic signal.

During Stage 2 construction, the daylong, one-lane traffic pattern on Bryn Mawr Avenue will move between Wootton Road and Harvard Lane from late June through late August. Traffic during this time will also be controlled by a temporary traffic signal.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because significant backups and delays will occur.

The work on the three bridges is part of a $7.7 million project to repair seven bridges in Philadelphia, Delaware and Montgomery counties.

The four other structures completed under this project include:

  • The U.S. 13 (Frankford Avenue) bridge over Pennypack Creek in Philadelphia, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places;
  • Byberry Road over Southampton Creek in Upper Moreland Township and Bryn Athyn Borough, Montgomery County;
  • Greenwood Avenue over a branch of Rock Creek in Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County; and
  • Eagleville Road over Eagleville Run in Lower Providence Township, Montgomery County.

Loftus Construction, Inc. of Cinnaminson, N.J., is the general contractor on this bridge improvement project that is financed with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state funds.
