A press release regarding the Royersford-Spring City Bridge closure was sent out this afternoon, updating residents, business owners and the media on the progress of the bridge closure.
As of 6:20 a.m., the bridge was closed today and will remain so for approximately eight weeks. Signs are posted at both ends of the bridge and the detour is marked through the area. Here is the release:
As previously announced, the Main Street bridge connecting Royersford and Spring City was closed on schedule this morning, and will remain closed for approximately eight weeks for bridge deck replacement. The closure occurred at 6:20 a.m. Signs are posted in both boroughs, saying “Bridge Closed – open to local traffic and all businesses.” For through traffic, the posted detour follows Route 724 and Route 422. We thank the community for their patience and understanding while PennDOT performs this necessary work to ensure the structural integrity and safety of the bridge. When work is complete this fall, the bridge will no longer be structurally deficient.
