PennDOT Reopens 2nd Avenue Bridge in Upper Providence

KING OF PRUSSIA PA – The bridge carrying 2nd Avenue over Mingo Creek in Upper Providence (at top) has reopened, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Monday (Nov. 16, 2020), following completion of its rehabilitation. The bridge is one of seven included in a $5 million project to repair or replace poor-condition spans in Montgomery, Chester, and Bucks counties, the state added.

Built in 1883, the bridge is 10-feet long and 17-feet wide. The structure carries an average of 4,130 vehicles a day. Loftus Construction Inc. of Cinnaminson NJ was the general contractor on this bridge improvement. Work on remaining bridges in the project is expected to be completed by late Summer 2022.
