Johnson Highway Bridge work competed ahead of schedule.
PennDOT’s contractor has rehabilitated the bridge by removing the existing superstructure and installing a new bridge deck, barrier and sidewalk; performing scour rock and stream repair; and paving bridge approaches.
Built in 1924, and reconstructed in 1966, the one-span bridge is 28 feet long and 55 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 9,096 vehicles a day.
The rehabilitation of the bridge carrying Johnson Highway over a branch of Sawmill Run Creek is part of PennDOT’s $6.8 million project to rehabilitate six poor condition bridges in Bucks and Montgomery counties, three structurally-deficient culverts in Bucks County, and to stabilize a stream embankment at a bridge in Bucks County.
Loftus Construction, Inc. of Cinnaminson, N.J., was the general contractor on the project financed with 100 percent state funds through Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation plan.
