A York County bridge approach is set to be rebuilt by a PennDOT contractor over the first few weekends in June.

The $19 million reconstruction project, upgrading the Route 15 bridge just south of Clear Spring Road in Dillsburg, will begin June 3. 

According to the state Department of Transportation, the contractor will close the northbound right lane after 9 a.m. and the southbound right lane after 7 p.m. Existing asphalt will be removed from both lanes and replaced, with the work expected to be completed by the evening of June 5.

The process will be repeated in the passing lanes on northbound and southbound Route 15 starting the weekend of June 17. Paving will be performed at a later date, PennDOT reported, noting that all of the work is weather permitting. 

Ultimately, the project will include the lengthening of ramp acceleration and deceleration lanes, the addition of guide rails and resurfacing. The main contractor is New Enterprise Stone and Lime Co., which is expected to complete all of the work by August 2023.
