TINICUM TWP., Pa. -

Repair work has started on a historic bridge in Bucks County.

Crews are repairing the Erwinna Covered Bridge in Tinicum Township.

PennDOT says a delivery truck struck and damaged the bridge last month.

The same thing happened last fall.

In addition to repairs, PennDOT will funnel traffic to the center of the bridge.

And all trucks, except emergency vehicles and certain exceptions, will be banned from using it.

PennDOT says the span should reopen late next month.
