Reopening Delayed for Route 340 Bridge Salisbury Township 

Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

Harrisburg, PA – The reopening of the bridge carrying Route 340 (Old Philadelphia Pike) over Pequea Creek in Salisbury Township, Lancaster County, has been delayed. 

Construction started on August 20 and was anticipated to be completed in November. However, due to unforeseen geological conditions with limestone rock that required extensive drilling, the new bridge is now anticipated to open in late December.  

While the bridge is still closed, drivers will continue to follow a detour along Route 897 (White Horse Road), Route 30 (Lincoln Highway) and Route 10 (Octorara Trail).

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change. 

This bridge is referred to as JV-256 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. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
