According to PennDOT, the construction, which is scheduled to begin in 2024, will include arch rehabilitation, replacement of the deck and sidewalks on the eastern bridge, and construction of a new deck and beams on the western bridge.

“The purpose of the project is to maintain safe and efficient multimodal connectivity across the Susquehanna River between Harrisburg and the West Shore communities, as well as access to City Island and its amenities,” PennDOT said in a released statement.
