A PennDOT plan to replace a key bridge dating to 1910 will result in an estimated 12-month road closure.

The South George Street bridge over Tyler Run in York Township is located in a mixed commercial and residential area near Interstate 83. According to PennDOT, the entire bridge and roadway must be replaced due to structural deficiencies.

The proposed bridge replacement will carry two lanes over Tyler Run. The project is currently in design work, and construction is expected to take place over 12 months in 2023 and 2024. South George Street traffic will be detoured, and access to all driveways and businesses will be maintained.
