Work slated on 5 bridges, Route 741 near Lancaster

Posted: Updated:
LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

Preparatory work was scheduled to begin Monday night on a project to rehabilitate five bridges and repair and resurface a two-mile section of Route 741 from Route 30 to Route 283 in Lancaster County.

PennDOT spokesman Mike Crochunis said that as part of the $3.26 million project, the bridge decks over Swarr Run and Little Conestoga Creek will be replaced, and bridge decks over Route 283 and the Amtrak and Norfolk Southern railroad tracks will be resurfaced.

Crochunis said drivers initially may encounter overnight lane and shoulder restrictions between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., weather permitting, as crews reconstruct the roadway shoulders for a new traffic pattern.

During the week of April 15, the contractor will set concrete barrier and shift traffic onto the shoulder in order to accommodate two lanes of travel.

Two lanes of travel will be maintained weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Drivers at other times may encounter single-lane restrictions with flaggers alternating traffic through the work zone, Crochunis said.

The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.
