One and a half miles of Bristol Road will be closing next week as PennDOT crews work on pipe replacement.
The closure is between Brownsville Road and Neshaminy Boulevard. It will last from Monday, November 16th through Friday Nov. 20 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
During this closure, motorists will need to take a fairly wide detour out to Street Road. This could add 5 to 10 minutes to a drive depending on traffic.
Even after 3 p.m. on these days, part of the detour will still be in place as a smaller section of Bristol Road is already closed for the next six months. Crews demolished the bridge over Route 1 this past weekend as part of a larger project in the area.
