A Conewago Township bridge that was being replaced reopened to the public 30 days ahead of schedule, according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The Route 921 bridge, which spans Locust Run in Conewago Township, reopened Wednesday, Aug. 23, PennDOT said. 

 

The bridge closed July 10 and was expected to remain closed for 75 days.

According to PennDOT, Doli Construction Corp. was able to expedite the construction 30 days ahead of schedule, reopening the bridge just one day before Northeastern York School District students return to school.

The new crossing is longer and wider than the previous one, and it is designed with a 100-year lifespan, PennDOT said.

It was one of 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
