Harrisburg, PA – The full replacement of the bridge carrying Route 34 (Carlisle Road) over Hunters Run in South Middleton Township, Cumberland County, currently under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is scheduled to be completed early next year.
Construction to replace the 92-year-old bridge started in June 2018. Traffic will be maintained on Route 34 (Carlisle Road) with one-way alternating traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals until the construction of the new bridge is completed in early January 2019.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns will occur.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-237 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.
