Lincoln Road Over Hammer Creek
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to an online plans display regarding the SR 1024 (Lincoln Road) superstructure replacement project. This project is located over Hammer Creek at the border of Clay and Warwick Townships, roughly 3 miles to the northeast of Lititz PA. The purpose of this project is to address structural deficiencies of the bridge and provide continued safe and efficient crossing of SR 1024, Section 007 over Hammer Creek in Clay Township, Lancaster County.
The project consists of replacing the almost 50-year old prestressed concrete beams and deck, approach pavement replacement, rock scour protection, guiderail, and minor drainage updates. The bridge width will be maintained at its current width and will include two 11-foot lanes and 8-foot shoulders. The bridge will be closed for approximately 5 months to all traffic during the construction. The proposed detour route will use SR 1024 (Lincoln Road) to SR 1035 (Brunnerville Rd/Clay Creek Rd) to SR 322. The Conestoga Trail, which runs parallel to Hammer Creek on the west bank, will be maintained for pedestrian traffic throughout construction.
The project is currently in design and construction work is expected to take place in the 2021 construction season.
In accordance with Governor Wolf's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, in plans display will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online from June 8, 2020, to July 10, 2020.
