Open house on Rt. 925 bridge replacement, March 30

926BridgeNPOCOPSON — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will hold an open house public meeting on Wednesday, March 30, from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM for the upcoming project to replace the Route 926 (Street Road) bridge over the Brandywine Creek in Birmingham and Pocopson townships.

The public meeting will be held at the Pocopson Elementary School, which is located at 1105 Pocopson Road in Pocopson Township. The meeting will feature an open house plans display, a presentation at 6:30 PM, and a question-and-answer session at 7:00 PM. PennDOT project team members will be available to discuss the plans with interested citizens.

“We are holding the open house to update and inform citizens in the local communities on the plan under design to improve the Route 926 crossings over the Brandywine Creek and Radley Run, and to provide information on the recently completed environmental studies,” said PennDOT District Executive Kenneth M. McClain.

At the open house, citizens will have the opportunity to circulate among the various subject displays to gather information and discuss the different facets of the project with PennDOT’s project team. 

PennDOT plans to improve Route 926 (Street Road) by replacing the 79-year-old bridge over the Brandywine Creek with a new three-span structure at a higher elevation; rebuilding and raising 1,700 feet of the roadway approaches to make them less prone to flooding; replacing the nearby culvert over Radley Run; and by realigning 800 feet of Creek Road at its northern intersection with Route 926 (Street Road). 

The project is currently in final engineering design and construction is expected to start in early 2017. Route 926 (Street Road) will be closed and detoured during construction of the new bridge and culvert.
