The start of construction
project has been rescheduled to Monday, April 9, to replace the Fisher Avenue (State Route 4020) bridge, spanning Qureg Run at the eastern end of the Fort Indiantown Gap National Guard Training Center in Union Township, Lebanon County. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of April 2, as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
During construction, traffic will be reduced to one travel lane open in each direction through the work zone. During stage two of construction, Quartermaster Road will be closed south of Fisher Avenue. During this time, traffic will be detoured along Fisher Avenue to Biddle Road. The new bridge is anticipated to be complete in July.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-284 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.
