Construction for the bridge carrying Route 997 (Cumberland Highway) over Conodoguinet Creek at the Letterkenny-Lurgan township line in Franklin County, has been rescheduled to begin on Monday, August 27. Construction was scheduled to begin this week as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
When the bridge closes for full replacement, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 533 (Orrstown Road), Roxbury Road (Route 4016) and Route 641 (Forge Hill Road). The bridge is anticipated to be complete in December.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-250 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.
