Rt. 100 At Farmington Closing Nights May 29-31
UPPER POTTSGROVE PA – Route 100 is scheduled to be closed in both directions May 29-31 (2018; Tuesday through Thursday) during overnight hours from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly at the Farmington Avenue interchange so contractors for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation can paint the bridge that carries Farmington over 100, the agency announced.
During the operation, northbound and southbound Route 100 traffic will be directed to exit at Farmington Avenue, and then re-enter the highway at the interchange entrance ramp.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the construction area. Slowdowns will occur, PennDOT said. The work schedule depends on the weather.
PennDOT reopened the bridge May 7 (Monday) at the end of a six-week rehabilitation project. It included repairing the existing concrete bridge deck, using hydro demolition and applying a latex-modified concrete overlay; replacing the existing deck joints, resetting the bearings, upgrading safety features, and milling and paving the bridge approaches.
The Farmington Avenue bridge was built in 1964. It is a one-span, welded, steel I-beam bridge that’s 113 feet long and 45 feet wide, and carries an average of 4,494 vehicles a day. The structure is one of 11 bridges in Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery counties PennDOT is repairing under a $5.5 million contract financed by the state’s transportation plan.
