Fleecy Dale Road bridge in Solebury Township closed indefinitely

The bridge carrying Fleecy Dale Road over a branch of Paunnacussing Creek in Solebury Township is closed indefinitely due to “serious deterioration of the stone masonry wingwall,” the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced late Friday.

Fleecy Dale Road will be closed north of Fretz Mill Road until PennDOT maintenance can examine the damage and develop a plan to repair the structure.

Motorists will be detoured over Route 32 (River Road), Greenhill Road, Mechanicsville Road, and Aquetong Road. Local access will be maintained up to the bridge closure.

The one-span, stone masonry arch bridge was originally built in 1850, is 11 feet long, 18 feet wide, and carries an average of 123 vehicles a day, according to PennDOT

    Nice try, residents of Fleecy Dale. They have always wanted this to be their own private road, yet still get benefits of city maintenance, etc. Now the closure is “indefinite”. This has been done numerous times in past to keep public from driving through. Let’s see how long it takes for the bridge to be repaired. 🙂
