Baltimore Pike bridge to be replaced under staged construction
Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that on February 13, weather permitting, its contractor will activate temporary traffic signals and set barrier that will restrict traffic to a single 11-foot-wide lane on the bridge that carries Route 194 over Bermudian Creek in Washington Township, York County.
The temporary traffic signals will assist in alternating motorists through the work zone as crews construct one half of the bridge at a time. This portion of Route 194, known locally as Baltimore Pike, averages more than 3,000 vehicles traveled daily.
PennDOT advises that Creek Road near the bridge will also be closed during demolition and construction of the new bridge and detoured by way of Kralltown Road and Route 194.
PennDOT awarded the $2,246,739 bridge replacement contract on August 17, 2016 to Susquehanna Valley Construction Corp. of New Cumberland, Cumberland County. Work includes replacement of the existing three-span reinforced concrete bridge over Bermudian Creek with a two-span composite bulb-tee bridge using staged construction.
Work on this bridge is expected to be completed by the end of April 2018
