    In Philly, country's oldest working bridge undergoing construction
    The oldest active bridge in the nation, located in Northeast Philly, is getting a tune-up. The Frankford Avenue Bridge, which was built in 1697 and reconstructed in 1893, is the first focus of PennDot's new $7.2 million bridge improvement project, which will target six other bridges in Montgomery and Delaware Counties, according to an announcement from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDot) last week.

A question came in about construction equipment at the Frankford Avenue Bridge. The bridge will be receiving a major overhaul due to its age and usage. The following comes from PENNDOT: Beginning Monday, March 26, through the end of August, PennDOT’s contractor will rehabilitate the stone arch U.S. 13 (Frankford Avenue) bridge by removing and rebuilding the north spandrel wall; excavating and replacing of the arch backfill with lightweight concrete; repairing deteriorated concrete along the arch barrel and repointing stone masonry along the arch barrel; reconstructing damaged stone masonry parapet walls; reconstructing the sidewalks; and replacing the bridge barrier with a new crashworthy bridge barrier. The project scope also includes installation of scour protection measures where needed. The U.S. 13 (Frankford Avenue) bridge will be closed and detoured during construction between Solly Avenue and Ashburner Street. During the five-month closure, U.S. 13 (Frankford Avenue) motorists will be detoured over Rhawn Street, Torresdale Avenue and Linden Avenue. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone. Detour routes and aids to navigation signs will be posted for pedestrians and recreational users of Pennypack Creek, respectively. Built in 1697 and reconstructed in 1893, the U.S. 13 (Frankford Avenue) bridge over Pennypack Creek is a three-span stone masonry and concrete closed spandrel arch structure. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the bridge is 73 feet long, 50 feet wide and carries about 14,745 vehicles a day, including SEPTA’s Route 66 trolley.
