The Route 34 (Carlisle Road) bridge, which spans Bermudian Creek at the Huntington-Tyrone Township line, between the villages of Idaville and Gardners in Adams County, reopened to traffic at around 11:45 PM this afternoon.
This bridge was replaced as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and allows PennDOT to remove it from the state's structurally deficient bridge list.
The bridge was closed on May 15 for the replacement project. Work was performed by Doli Construction of Chalfont, PA.
The new crossing is longer and wider than the one it replaced and is designed with a 100-year lifespan.
This bridge is referred to as JV-222 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.
