Whitemarsh bridge damaged by Hurricane Ida among 17 to be repaired

PennDOT announced on September 1st that construction is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 6th, on a project to repair 17 bridges in Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties that sustained serious damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida in September 2021. This includes Bethlehem Pike over Sandy Run Creek in Whitemarsh Township.

PennDOT’s contractor will address undermining or scour by repairing and reinforcing the support systems and foundations at these 17 structures to maintain them as safe and efficient crossings for the traveling public.

Loftus Construction, Inc. of Cinnaminson, NJ, is the general contractor on this $3.2 million bridge repair project, which is financed with 80% federal and 20% state funds. Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in spring 2023.
