Route 124 bridge to close for replacement
The bridge that carries Route 124 over Cabin Creek in Lower Windsor Township will close next week for a couple of months.
The bridge, which was built in 1927, will close Monday, Sept. 19, so workers can replace it, according to a news release from the state Department of Transportation.
PennDOT has deemed the bridge structurally deficient, so it's being replaced, the release states.
The bridge is one of 558 around the state that PennDOT has labeled structurally deficient, and PennDOT has entered into a partnership with Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners to replace them, the release states. The work is part of what the department is calling its rapid bridge replacement project.
The affected stretch of Route 124, which in that area is known as Abels Road, is just south of East Prospect. PennDOT says the bridge carries about 2,200 vehicles over the creek a day. Traffic will be rerouted around the bridge along Route 624, which is Long Level Road, Route 462, which is Lincoln Highway, Cabin Creek Road and Miller Spring Road.
