Shrewsbury Township bridge opens
A Shrewsbury Township bridge reopened Thursday, Aug. 30, according to PennDOT.
The state Department of Transportation said in a news release that the new bridge carrying Route 616 (Seven Valleys Road) over Centerville Creek in Shrewsbury Township opened Thursday afternoon.
The bridge had been closed since mid-June.
The bridge was part of PennDOT's Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, and it was one of 16 replaced in York County under the project.
PennDOT said motorists might notice a slight bump while driving across the bridge until a polyester polymer overlay is applied to the deck, which is often the final step in completing box beam bridge projects.
That will be applied in September, and an alternating traffic pattern controlled by flaggers will be in place while crews conduct that work, according to PennDOT.
