Allentown Road Bridge over Licking Creek Closed to All Traffic
2023-02-24

            PennDOT announced on Feb. 23 that the bridge carrying Allentown Road over Licking Creek between Route 663 (John Fries Highway) and Breisch Road in Milford Township, Bucks County, was closed indefinitely that afternoon due to railing damage sustained during a recent vehicular crash.

            During the 24/7 bridge closure, Allentown Road motorists will be directed to use Route 663 (John Fries Highway), Spinnerstown Road and Steinsburg Road. Local access will be maintained up to the bridge closure.

            The bridge will remain closed until bridge engineers develop a plan to repair the railing and safely reopen the structure. The design of a project to replace the bridge, and the bridge carrying Route 663 (John Fries Highway) over Licking Creek, is currently in design and scheduled for a construction bid opening in early spring 2024.

            The two-span Allentown Road bridge was built in 1935. The concrete encased, rolled steel I-beam structure is 44 feet long, 24 feet wide, and carries approximately 4,368 vehicles per day.
