A bridge between York and Lancaster counties that was closed by an overturned tractor-trailer reopened Saturday afternoon.

The Norman Wood Bridge (Route 372), which crosses the Susquehanna River between Lower Chanceford Township and Holtwood, Lancaster County, reopened a little before noon Saturday, March 3.

It had been closed to traffic since about 4 p.m. Friday, March 2, after strong winds caused the tractor-trailer to overturn.

Because of the strength of the winds, responders were unable to safely remove the vehicle that day.

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation bridge inspectors assessed on Saturday that the bridge had minor damage from the incident, PennDOT said. The tractor-trailer was set upright and removed from the bridge that afternoon.

The bridge, a two-lane, 21-span structure built in 1968 that carries an average of more than 4,300 vehicles daily, is now open to traffic.
