New Bridgeville Road bridge reopens

A recently repaired bridge which spans two municipalities in southeastern York County reopened to traffic over the weekend, according a release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The Route 425, New Bridgeville Road, bridge reopened at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 21. The bridge was replaced as part of PennDOT's Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, the release states.

It had been closed since February, according to the project's website.

Drivers might notice a slight bump when going across the bridge but that is temporary, PennDOT said. 

An overlay, akin to a sealant, is usually done as part of the final step, and it is designed to protect the deck from wear and tear, the release states. That overlay is scheduled to be done in the spring or summer, according to the project's website.

The goal for the project is to replace 558 of the state's 3,400 structurally deficient bridges, according to PennDOT.
