BRIDGE REPAIR ON RTE 322 @ SUGAR’S BRIDGE ROAD
PennDOT has begun preparations along Rte 322 at Sugar’s Bridge Road (between East and West Bradford Townships). A new bridge will be constructed just south of the current location, so traffic will continue to utilize the current bridge until the new one is complete. In addition, the abandoned section of roadway will be converted to a parking lot to serve the Brandywine Trail and the new bridge will have adequate clearance for the Trail to pass underneath Rt 322 at some point in the future (refer to the site plan). The anticipated date of completion is April 2021.
