The bridge over Skippack Creek is one of four in Montgomery County being repaired by PennDOT in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

On Sept. 6, PennDOT will begin a regional construction project to repair 17 bridges damaged a year ago by Hurricane Ida.

The $3.2 million project to reinforce the support systems and foundations of the bridges includes four structures in Montgomery County.

Residents are advised to leave additional time for commutes that may be delayed while traversing:

  • Route 309 (Bethlehem Pike) over Little Neshaminy Creek, Montgomery Township
  • Bethlehem Pike over Sandy Run Creek, Whitemarsh Township
  • Eagleville Road over Skippack Creek, Lower Providence Township
  • U.S. 13 (Frankford Avenue) over Pennypack Creek, Phila.

Loftus Construction, Inc., of Cinnaminson, N.J., is the general contractor on the bridge-repair project. The cost is being covered by federal and state funds in an 80–20 percent split, respectively.

The work is expected to be finished in spring 2023.

Commuters can check how the work is affecting their use of these spans through online project updates.
