Traffic Pattern Changes Rescheduled for Route 233 Bridge over Conodoquinet Creek
Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership
Harrisburg, PA – The traffic pattern changes for the Route 233 (Doubling Gap Road) bridge over Conodoquinet Creek, planned for later this week, as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project at the Lower Mifflin-North Newton Township line in Cumberland County, have been rescheduled.
The current traffic pattern will remain in place. Motorists should prepare for a traffic pattern change to occur on Wednesday, September 20. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals. Construction is anticipated to be complete in May, 2018.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-239 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 impact on motorists.
