St. David’s Road Bridge Reopens

No more detours are required to go between Radnor and Newtown Square.


The newly rehabilitated St. David’s Road bridge over Darby Creek just over the Radnor Township border in Newtown Township reopened Thursday, Dec. 6.

PennDOT’s contractor worked over the past four months to restore the structurally deficient bridge by:

  • rebuilding its deteriorated bridge walls
  • reinforcing the deck
  • reinforcing the foundation underneath the support abutments
  • performing masonry repairs, and
  • installing new guide rail

The stone arch bridge was built in 1810. It is 26 feet long and 24 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 6,500 vehicles a day. The bridge is no longer classified as structurally deficient following the rehabilitation project.

St. David’s Road bridge was one of three structurally deficient bridges in Delaware County that PennDOT is repairing under a $1,263,976 project.
