the Route 340 (Old Philadelphia Pike) bridge, spanning Miller’s Run in Salisbury Township, Lancaster 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 the state’s structurally deficient bridge list.
Construction is expected to begin during the week of September 18 and be complete in early December. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Route 10, Route 30 (Lincoln highway
), and Route 897 (White Horse Road).
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-257 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.
