PennDOT reopens Route 313 bridge

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has reopened the culvert carrying Route 313 (Dublin Pike) over Morris Run between Blue School Road and Route 113 (Bedminster Road) in Hilltown Township.

The bridge is no longer categorized as structurally deficient.

PennDOT’s contractor began construction in March to replace the structurally-deficient culvert with a new concrete arch culvert. Built in 1930, the one-span concrete culvert is 10 feet long and 44 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 13,446 vehicles a day.

On June 1, PennDOT reopened the bridge carrying Route 313 (Dublin Pike) over Perkiomen Creek in Bedminster Township.

This culvert replacement and bridge rehabilitation project on Route 313 (Dublin Pike) are part of PennDOT’s $6.8 million project to rehabilitate five structurally-deficient bridges in Bucks and Montgomery counties, three structurally-deficient culverts in Bucks County, and to stabilize a stream embankment at a bridge in Bucks County.

Work on the entire project is scheduled to be completed in late 2018.
