Construction for the Upper Bermudian Road (State Route 1016) bridge, spanning Bermudian Creek in Huntington and Tyrone townships, Adams County, is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 5, as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from the state’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Beginning March 5, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. motorists will encounter overnight closures of the bridge. During the overnight closings, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Old Carlisle Road (SR 4001), Route 34 (Carlisle Road), Idaville-York Springs Road (SR 1020) and Short Cut Road (SR 1023). The overnight detour is expected to be in place for two weeks. The bridge will reopen to traffic during the daytime hours.
Beginning the week of March 19, the bridge will be closed to all traffic for demolition and construction of the new bridge. The same detour -- Old Carlisle Road (SR 4001), Route 34 (Carlisle Road), Idaville-York Springs Road (SR 1020) and Short Cut Road (SR 1023) -- will be in place. The bridge is anticipated to be complete in June 2018.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-230 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.
