PennDOT will begin repairs this week on the Second Street Pike (Route 232) bridge over the Neshaminy Creek.

The bridge sits on the border of Northampton and Wrightstown townships.

According to PennDOT, there will be travel restrictions during the work in September and October.

Periodic 15-minute lane closures will take place on Second Street Pike between Swamp Road and Twining Road from Wednesday, September 13 through early October.

Drivers have been advised by PennDOT to allow extra time when traveling through the work zone.

The work is dependent on the weather.

PennDOT said the work will “repair and reinforce the support systems and foundations of the structures to maintain them as safe and efficient crossings for the traveling public.”

The 48-foot-wide bridge carries an average of 7,264 vehicles per day. It was built in 1982.

The Neshaminy Creek bridge is one of six projects planned for bridges in the Philadelphia region.

For the six bridge projects, Loftus Construction Inc. of Cinnaminson, New Jersey has been hired as the general contractor on the $815,000 bridge rehabilitation work. The project has been financed with 100 percent state funds.
