Harrisburg, PA - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to an online plans display regarding the State Route 2014 (Maple Shade Road) bridge replacement project. This project is located over Coopers Run in Colerain Township, approximately 8 miles southeast of Quarryville. The purpose of this project is to address structural deficiencies of the bridge and provide continued safe and efficient crossing of Maple Shade Road over Coopers Run.
The project consists of replacing the 96-year old one lane single span concrete slab bridge with a precast reinforced concrete box culvert. New approach pavement, rock scour protection, guiderail, and drainage updates will be included in the project. The overall width of the bridge will be increased to accommodate two lanes of traffic and include shoulders on each side of the bridge. The bridge will be closed for approximately 90 days to all traffic during construction. The proposed detour route will use State Route 472 (Kirkwood Pike) to State Route 2009 (Noble Road) to State Route 2013 (Bell Road).
The project is currently in design and construction work is expected to take place in the 2022 construction season. The duration of construction is anticipated to last approximately 6 months.
In accordance with Governor Wolf's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, a plans display will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online from January 29, 2021 to March 1, 2021.
