PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia bridge is set to reopen months after it was heavily damaged by sinkholes.

State Transportation Secretary Leslie Richards is expected to attend Thursday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Plymouth Road bridge in Plymouth Township.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/1Jlrkgm) 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.
