The start of a construction project to replace the Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) bridge, spanning Eshleman Run in Paradise Township, Lancaster County, has been rescheduled. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of April 9, as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
The bridge replacement project is now scheduled next week, with a traffic pattern switch anticipated to begin at the end of the week. Traffic will be maintained using two-way traffic eastbound and westbound. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area. The new bridge is anticipated to be complete in November.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-254 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
