Route 462 bridge to close Friday night for walk

Christopher Dornblaser

The Route 462 bridge between Columbia and Wrightsville will be closed for about two hours Friday night, according to a release from the Columbia Borough Police Department.

The bridge will be closed from about 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk.

"The Veterans Memorial Bridge connecting Wrightsville on the York side, and Columbia in Lancaster County carries PA Route 462 across the Susquehanna River. Opened in 1930, the bridge parallels the piers that held the original bridge, burned by Union troops during the Civil War in 1863 to keep Confederates from crossing the river."
