Harrisburg, PA – The scheduled completion of the new bridge carrying Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) over Eshleman Run in Paradise Township, Lancaster County, has been delayed until mid-to-late January 2019 because of bad weather. The bridge is currently under construction as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and had previously been expected to be complete in late December 2018.
One-lane of traffic will be maintained eastbound and westbound until the construction of the new bridge is completed. 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-254 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.
