the Route 194 (South Queen Street) bridge, spanning a branch of Beaver Creek in Abbottstown Borough, Adams County, is scheduled to begin as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Adams County’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of September 11 and be complete
in late-November. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 30 (East King Street) and Route 94 (Carlisle Pike).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-225 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.
