10th Street bridge to open in Lebanon

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

The City of Lebanon has scheduled a dedication ceremony next week for the opening of the new 10th Street bridge.

The bridge spanning the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks will allow southbound traffic on Route 72 to move through the city without interruption from freight trains that cross through Lebanon several times a day.

The dedication ceremony was scheduled for Tuesday, August 27 at 5:30 p.m.

The 10th Street bridge is the second structure to be completed as part of a construction project that began in October 2011 following a decade of preparation and planning.

The 9th Street bridge, which allows Route 72 northbound traffic to pass over the rail lines, opened in September 2012.

Before the opening of the bridges, officials said north-south travel through Lebanon was interrupted for up to three hours by more than 60 trains that cross the city for a substantial part of each day.
