Plymouth Road Bridge Reopens After Sinkhole Damage

A Montgomery County bridge reopened Thursday months after it was heavily damaged by sinkholes.

State Transportation Secretary Leslie Richards attended Thursday's ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Plymouth Road bridge in Plymouth Township.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the state fast-tracked a $2.2 million bridge replacement after sinkholes in the foundation forced the bridge to close in March.

The two-lane bridge carries about 15,600 cars a day over Plymouth Creek between Butler and Germantown pikes.

The roadway reopened a few days early.
