Chester Co - Rt 282 Bridge Repair
Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, April 15 to repair the Route 282 (Creek Road) Bridge over Indian Run Creek in Wallace Township, Chester County. The work is expected to finish by mid-May.
Crews will work to repair and improve the bridge abutments and structural steel beams to extend the life of the bridge for another 20 years.
During construction, Route 282 (Creek Road) will be closed between Fairview Road and Marshall Road. Through traffic will be detoured over Fairview Road, Little Conestoga Road, and Marshall Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area.
The one-span, steel I-beam beam bridge was built in 1932. It is 30 feet long and 25 feet wide. The structure carries 1,425 vehicles a day.
The rehabilitation of the Route 282 (Creek Road) Bridge is part of PennDOT’s $914,262 project to repair and improve eight bridges in Chester County. J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Chester County is the general contractor on the project that is financed with 100 percent state funds.
