Construction for the Route 17 bridge, spanning an unnamed tributary to the Susquehanna River in Liverpool Borough, Perry County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of March 19 and be complete in early June. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Red Bridge Road, Perry Valley Road, and South Front Street.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-287 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.
