Harrisburg, PA – The new bridge carrying Mount Tabor Road (State Route 4005) over Opossum Creek in Menallen Township, Adams County, will close on Thursday, November 29 to Thursday, December 20, 2018, for bridge repairs. The bridge closing is necessary due to damage caused by recent flooding. This bridge was replaced in August 2017 as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
During the bridge closing, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 34 (Carlisle Road), Gablers Road (State Route 4003), and Main Street (State Route 4008).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-233 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.
