Bridge repair to restrict overnight Route 462 traffic

Christopher Dornblaser

Update: Due to the rainy weather, the start of the repair operation that was scheduled for tonight has been canceled, according to a press release. The repair will begin tomorrow, weather permitting.


Nighttime repairs of the bridge carrying Interstate 83 over Route 462 in Springettsbury Township will restrict eastbound traffic on Route 462 to a single lane where it passes under the bridge, according to a PennDOT news release.

The bridge over Route 462 was hit by an over-height load carried by a truck on Dec. 14.

The repair will begin at 6 p.m. Monday and continue until 6 a.m. the next morning, and it will be repeated the next night, according to the release. During the repair, the left eastbound lane on Route 462 will be restricted to the right lane under the bridge. The operation will take two to four nights to complete, depending on weather and progress of the work.
