Swamp Road Bridge Rehabilitation Project Will Divert Traffic - Including Quarry Trucks - to Durham Road/Stoopville Road Detour. Yikes!

Swamp Road Bridge Rehabilitation Project Will Divert Traffic - Including Quarry Trucks - to Durham Road/Stoopville Road Detour. Yikes! | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to a virtual plans display regarding the Swamp Road Bridge Rehabilitation Project, located over a Tributary to Neshaminy Creek in Newtown Township, Bucks County. This project will rehabilitate the bridge by reconstructing a stone masonry retaining wall and repairing the existing stone masonry bridge components.

Traffic Impact
During construction, traffic will be detoured around the project area. The proposed detour route will use Worthington Mill Road to Route 413 (Durham Road) to the Newtown Bypass.  Vehicular access to the neighborhoods and homes on Swamp Road will remain available when the detour is in place.

Project Schedule
The project is currently in preliminary engineering and construction work is expected to begin in fall 2024. Following the Commonwealth’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts, a virtual plans display is available for review and comment online from August 1, 2021, to August 30, 2021.

johnmacknewtown's insight:

The traffic on Durham Road will be horrendous! I assume this means even more heavy quarry truck traffic on Durham Rd exiting perhaps onto Stoopville Road or perhaps straight down to the Bypass! Download the Public Comment Form.

 

Meanwhile, In Case You Missed It: Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line Company, LLC is planning to close Swamp Road between Sawmill Lane and Liberty Drive in Newtown Township, beginning Tuesday, Aug. 10, for pipe repair, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced. The closure will be in place 24/7 through Tuesday, August 24. Same detour route!
