Due to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Expansion project, the Bridge on New Falls Road, in Bristol Twp. is closed to all traffic starting this week. Local traffic can access up to Nebraska Street if you are coming from Newportville Road.
Posted detours are in effect. Take Zimmerman Lane to get around . A traffic light has been installed at Zimmerman and New Falls Road. Ford Road can avoid this but may be congested at times. This construction will include enhanced truck turning onto Nebraska Street and the entire project is expected to last about a year. If you are driving an 18 wheeler, follow all posted detours.
