The Stockton Avenue Bridge will soon welcome back vehicular traffic as its extensive rehabilitation nears completion.
The bridge is expected to reopen by the end of this month, a county official said.
George Hutt, the director of the Bucks County General Services Department, confirmed that the project is in its “final stage.”
Over the past months, the Bucks County-owned bridge underwent significant repairs including concrete deck and beam work.
Crews are now working on repainting the structure and installing new commemorative plaques.
Hutt said there are some punch list items that still need to be finished.
The restoration efforts cost $1.5 million.
Since its closure to vehicles in April, the bridge over the Aquetong Creek has generally remained accessible to pedestrians.
The bridge that sits between West Ferry and West Mechanic Street had a repair project completed on the span about a decade ago.
Constructed in 1910, the Stockton Avenue Bridge has seen its fair share of history. It was widened in 1974 to include a second sidewalk. The bridge holds the distinction of being the longest maintained by the county government.
