A historic stone-arch bridge located along Norristown’s Main Street was recently rededicated after a year of reconstruction. The $1.45 million bridge rehabilitation was managed by Urban and is part of a larger effort by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to improve travel on S.R. 202, Section 520, in Montgomery County.
Historians referred to the bridge as a “contributing element” in the Norristown historic district. Therefore, the rehabilitation of the 159-year-old stone-arch bridge fell under strict guidelines for approved material and all existing stone was salvaged as long as it was in adequate condition. The bridge is used by more than 20,000 vehicles a day.
