*4/17 UPDATE*

Beginning Monday, April 23, PennDOT’s contractor will be performing masonry wall repairs, substructure and beam repairs and other miscellaneous construction on the structure carrying Grubbs Mill Road over Crum Creek in Willistown Township, which was closed in March due to structural damage sustained from impact by a vehicle.

During the two-month project, Grubbs Mill Road will continue to be closed and detoured between White Horse Road and Goshen Road. Motorists will be directed to use Goshen Road, Providence Road, Warren Avenue and Paoli Pike/Devon Road. Local access will be maintained up to the bridge.

Built in 1921, the single-span concrete T-beam bridge is 42 feet long, 18 feet wide and carries an average of 1,452 vehicles a day.
