Dauphin County will close the Duke Street Bridge in Hummelstown and South Hanover Township to all traffic this afternoon.

The county-owned bridge at the intersection of N. Duke Street and South Hoernerstown Road has critical deficiencies that must be addressed, county spokeswoman Amy Richards said in a news release.

The bridge will close at 2 p.m. and will likely remain closed until mid-April, when temporary repairs should be complete, Richards said.

One-lane/one-way traffic restrictions put in place last April will be reinstated once temporary repairs are finished.

The 103-year-old bridge will be permanently closed and demolished as part of a $3.5-million replacement project expected to begin next year.

Richards said it is possible that a complete closure of the bridge could reoccur before 2015.
