Lower Macungie Township has awarded a contract for the Gehman Road Bridge Replacement project to DOLI Construction Corporation of Chalfont, PA, who will be performing the work. 

The work will include a detour of the bridge as Gehman Road will remain closed between Grandview Drive and Scenic View Drive for the duration of the project.  Please note that for safety reasons, the pedestrian bridge crossing the creek will also be closed. The closure is being coordinated with the end of the 2021-2022 East Penn School District school year and the start of the 2022-2023 school year. In general, the work involves the complete removal and replacement of the existing bridge and foundation with a new foundation and bridge, including new guiderail and new pavement restoration. 

Important Dates

  • The Township awarded the bid for this project on December 2, 2021
  • We anticipate work on this project to begin on June 20th and be completed by August 27th 
  • Gehman Road and the pedestrian bridge will be closed during this time and a detour will be in place.
