Construction for the Shirktown Road (State Route 1019) bridge, spanning Conestoga River in Caernarvon Township, Lancaster County, is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 3, 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 PennDOT’s list of structurally deficient bridges in Lancaster County.

During the first week of construction, motorists will encounter traffic restricted to a single lane between 6 AM and 7 PM, with flaggers assisting them through the work zone. The bridge will be closed on Wednesday, April 5, during the overnight hours between 7 PM and 6 AM. Motorists will be detoured around the closure by way of Route 10 (Twin County Road), and Route 23 (Main Street).

Beginning April 12, the bridge will be closed to all traffic for demolition and construction of the new bridge. The same detour – Route 10 and Route 23 – will be used. The new bridge is anticipated to be opened to traffic in late June.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change. 

This bridge is referred to as JV-262 and is one out of 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.
