The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced that construction is scheduled to begin Wednesday, November 4, on a project to replace the structure carrying Suplee Road over the east branch of Brandywine Creek in the 1200 block of Suplee Road in Honey Brook Township, Chester County. Due to the nature of construction, Suplee Road will be detoured 24/7 between Route 322 (Horseshoe Pike) and Chestnut Tree Road beginning Wednesday, November 4, through the completion of the project, scheduled for late December. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone east and west of the 1200 block of Suplee.
Built in 1937, the current structure will be replaced with a new box culvert and carries an average of 990 vehicles a day. Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training. This work is part of eight structures in Bucks and Chester counties that PennDOT is repairing or replacing under a $4,245,232 project financed with 100 percent state funds.
