County needs more time to repair Centerton Bridge

By AUBRIE GEORGE | The Moorestown Sun
Moorestown commuters who travel by way of Centerton Bridge will have to follow detours slightly longer than originally anticipated.
Burlington County officials announced last week that the historic bridge would remain closed another month to address additional repairs that were found during maintenance and repair work that was already being done. According to a statement released by the county, the highway department discovered that several steel deck panels were in “marginal condition” while doing scheduled repairs to the bridge’s metal deck.
The department will replace those panels in addition to the repair work that had already been scheduled.
Scheduled repair work involved extensive metal work — including replacing the metal deck that supports the asphalt over the bridge, repairs to the guardrail, repairs to some of the bridge’s structure, repairs to the bridge’s opening mechanism as well as replacement of a section of the concrete decking over the mechanism, county officials said.
