The Bergey Mill Road Bridge is located in Lower Salford Township. This bridge was built in 1893 and includes two spans, 196 feet long with 3,077 square feet of deck area above the east branch of the Perkiomen Creek.
The Bergey Mill Bridge was closed in 2012 as a structurally deficient bridge. The bridge is planned for a complete replacement.
This project is currently in engineering and planning and construction is anticipated to begin in 2021 with completion in 2022.
Operating Budget Impact
Future maintenance of the bridge will require additional resource time, materials and supplies adding new annual operating expenditures beginning in 2022.
This project is not eligible for existing grant funding and will be 100% funded through the County’s Motor Vehicle Registration Capital Fund.
