Harrisburg, PA – The finishing touches of repair work on several bridges on Route 283 in northwestern Lancaster County will limit traffic to a single lane in one or both directions between 9 AM and 3 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (December 11-13) of this coming week.
On Monday, the contractor will be working on sealing joints and applying additional waterproofing on the parapets (i.e., bridge walls) of the Route 283 bridge over Route 741. On Tuesday, the contractor will be doing similar work on the Route 283 bridges over Route 743, Cloverleaf Road, and Schwanger Road. And on Wednesday, the contractor will be working on three bridges just northwest of Elizabethtown – again over Route 743, over Beverly Road, and over the Conewago Recreational Rail Trail. This work is weather dependent, and the schedule may change. Motorists are asked to be alert to this operation, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through the work zone – for their safety as well as the safety of the work crews.
The work on these days are the finishing touches of a nearly $1.4-million bridge preservation project with Deblin, Inc. of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania that began in early summer to make repairs to nine bridges on Route 283 in Lancaster County.
