Pine Road bridge gets new weight restriction

Pine Road’s bridge over Pennypack Creek is get­ting a new weight re­stric­tion of 20 tons while the Streets De­part­ment re­pairs some de­teri­or­a­tion re­cently dis­covered.

Ped­es­tri­ans and vehicles will be able to use the bridge as re­pairs are made, the de­part­ment an­nounced in a June 20 news re­lease.

The pre­vi­ous weight lim­it was 40 tons. The new lim­it, Streets said, will de­crease the rate of the bridge’s de­teri­or­a­tion. ••
