Bridge will be restricted to a single lane for traffic switch
Harrisburg, PA – A traffic switch is scheduled this Wednesday, January 13, at a bridge replacement project on Route 74 (High Street) over Letort Spring Run in Carlisle Borough, Cumberland County.
High Street will be reduced to a single lane under flagging during daylight hours so the contractor can move traffic over to the completed portion of the bridge.
The switch is expected to take about a day to complete.
This work is part of a bridge replacement project that includes the design of the new structure, coordinated utility work, removing the existing 83-year-old two-span concrete T-beam bridge and replacing it with a two-span prestressed concrete spread box beam bridge under staged construction, installation of erosion and sediment control measures, drainage work, roadway approach construction, and new guiderail, signs and pavement markings.
Jay Fulkroad & Sons Inc. of the Village of McAlisterville, Juniata County, is the prime contractor on this $2,598,847 project.
Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones for their safety as well as for the safety of the road crews.
