CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: Work on New Route 30 Bridge over Rock Creek to Wrap Up in Spring JV-220
Harrisburg, PA – The full replacement of the bridge carrying Route 30 (York Road) over Rock Creek in Gettysburg Borough and Straban Township, Adams County, currently under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is scheduled to be completed next spring.
Construction to replace the 80-year-old bridge started in mid-August this year, with crews replacing the south side of the bridge. Construction on the north side of the bridge will begin in early January 2019. Traffic will continue to be maintained with one-lane of traffic traveling eastbound and westbound through the work zone until the construction of the new bridge is completed in late May 2019.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns will occur.
This bridge is referred to as JV-220 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.
