Bridge between Columbia, Wrightsville to close Saturday morning

York Dispatch
The Veterans Memorial Bridge connecting Wrightsville on the York County side and Columbia in Lancaster County carries state 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.

The Route 462 bridge connecting York and Lancaster counties will be closed for an event Saturday morning, according to officials.

Columbia Police said the bridge will be closed from 7:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, for the 11th Annual MAG 5K Fall Flash.

The department urges drivers to use an alternate route during that time.
