(WHTM) — Construction will begin on a Midstate bridge, beginning Monday, Aug. 28

The Wright’s Ferry Bridge, which connects York and Lancaster counties will be undergoing median work. Two lanes will remain open during this time.

This work is in preparation to handle the extra traffic from the Veterans Memorial Bridge, which will close in 2025 for its own construction.

PennDOT says that both bridges see a good amount of travel daily.

“The average daily traffic on the Wrights Ferry Bridge (or) the Route 30 bridge is 56,000 vehicles a day. The Columbia- Wrightsville bridge is upwards of 10,000 vehicles a day,” David Thompson of PennDOT said.

Currently, truckers have to avoid Veterans Memorial Bridge because of a weight restriction. This restriction will be lifted once the constriction is complete.
