King of Prussia, PA – The bridge carrying Fleecy Dale Road over branch of Paunacussing Creek in Solebury Township, Bucks County, is closed indefinitely due to serious deterioration of the stone masonry wingwall, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.
Fleecy Dale Road will be closed north of Fretz Mill Road until PennDOT maintenance can examine the damage and develop a plan to repair the structure.
During the closure, Fleecy Dale Road motorists will be detoured over Route 32 (River Road), Greenhill Road, Mechanicsville Road, and Aquetong Road. Local access will be maintained up to the bridge closure.
