On April 28, 2011, The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced the closure of the Host Church Road Bridge over Mill Creek in Tulpehocken Township, Berks County.

A recent inspection of the Bridge showed increased deterioration to the bridge deck pans. The bridge will remain closed indefinitely.

As a result, Host Church Road will remain closed between PA 419 and Parkside Inn Road.

The bridge had previously been reduced to a single lane.

The Host Church Road Bridge is a steel I-beam bridge built in 1938, and is 33 feet long and 24 feet wide. This area of Host Church Road has an average daily traffic volume of 445 vehicles.
