Wider Worthington Mill Road bridge opens early


Five months ahead of schedule, replacement of the Worthington Mill Road bridge over Neshaminy Creek on the Wrightstown/Northampton border has been completed, according to PennDOT.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced the state-funded $4.5 million project’s conclusion Wednesday.

Work to reconstruct the 68-year-old single-lane span, crossed by about 2,600 vehicles per day, began in August 2022, but the bridge was closed in September 2021 after Hurricane Ida-related flooding damaged the roadway approaches to the bridge.

The new structure is wider, allowing for two lanes of traffic to cross at the same time. The old bridge had one lane.

H&K Group Inc., of Montgomery County, was the project’s general contractor.
