LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — A portion of Route 283 in Lancaster County which was scheduled to be closed until 6 a.m. Monday has reopened, according to a PennDOT spokesperson.

The spokesperson stated that the section of Route 283 West was able to reopen early due to work being ahead of schedule.

According to PennDOT, the closure was in place so a span could be removed from the Strickler Road bridge spanning the highway in Rapho Township. The eastbound lanes remained open.

The Strickler Road bridge was closed to traffic in October due to a vehicle strike. It will remain closed until further notice. PennDOT has said they are currently working on a repair plan and will provide updates once a repair schedule is available.
