South Sugan Road In New Hope reopened to traffic

The bridge carrying South Sugan Road over Aquetong Creek in New Hope was reopened to traffic on Thursday.

The road had been closed and detoured between West Mechanic Street and Stoney Hill Road since July 29 to allow repair of the bridge.

During the closure, South Sugan Road motorists were detoured over U.S. 202 (Lower York Road), Aquetong Road and Stoney Hill Road.

PennDOT’s contractor rehabilitated the bridge over Aquetong Creek by adding concrete overlay to the bridge deck, performing concrete substructure repairs, replacing and resealing the bridge deck joints, installing scour rock protection, and milling and paving the roadway.

Built in 1973, the single-span bridge is 49 feet long and 38 feet wide, and carries an average of 813 vehicles a day.

The project was part of an effort to rehabilitate eight poor-condition bridges in Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery counties.
