Harrisburg, PA – Construction for the bridge carrying Springville Road (State Route 1024) over Indian Run in Ephrata Township, Lancaster County, has been rescheduled to begin on Wednesday, August 15, as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. The bridge was previously scheduled to close for construction today.
When the bridge closes for full replacement, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 322 (West Main Street), Route 272 and Schoeneck Road (State Route 1047). The new bridge is anticipated to be complete in late October.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-264 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.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
