Roads and Bridges personnel are constantly working to keep County bridges and roads in good repair. 

  • Repairing our bridges. Montgomery County owns and maintains 131 bridges and has made it a priority to repair or replace all Structurally Deficient bridges in its inventory by 2026. To date, the County has cut its inventory of structurally deficient bridges in half from 53 (40%) in 2017 to 25 bridges (19%) today. 
  • Repairing our roads. Over the last five years, 75 miles of County-owned roads have been repaved. By end of 2023, Montgomery County expects to have resurfaced all 150 lane miles of County-owned roads. All current road projects now include high visibility epoxy paint applied to center lines, shoulders, and intersections markings to help keep travelers safe.

Completed projects

Montgomery County's Roads and Bridges team takes tremendous pride in helping our residents and visitors reach their destinations safely and efficiently. See below for an look at some of the most recent projects they've completed. 

  1. Lutheran Road Bridge - New Hanover Township

Montgomery County Bridge #163, which carries Lutheran Road over the Minister Creek in New Hanover, was originally constructed in 1923 as a single lane, two-span, continuous concrete slab bridge spanning 38 feet.  An August 2016 inspection of the bridge resulted in an overall poor rating and the bridge was listed as structurally deficient and in need of replacement.  The Engineering design contract was awarded to Bergmann Associates of Conshohocken, PA.  As of August 2019, the bridge was inspected again and reported to be in need of high priority maintenance items per the PennDOT Bridge Safety Inspection Manual.  The bridge inspections were subsequently scheduled at shorter time intervals.  In April of 2020, the Engineering design, permitting, and environmental studies were completed and ready to be advertised for construction bids.

The new bridge was designed to be a precast concrete box culvert with a clear span of 30 feet.  The Construction contract was awarded to Richard E. Pierson Construction of Malvern, PA with a start date of April 28, 2022.  The project was scheduled to be completed within 182 calendar days and reopened to traffic by October 27, 2022.  With oversight by Michael Baker International of Fort Washington, PA providing Construction Inspection and Quality Control services, the bridge was completed and opened to traffic on August 20, 2022, which was 68 calendar days ahead of schedule and just in time for school openings and subsequent bus traffic.
