Bridge work going over Route 283 now underway in three locations

Posted

Work to repair all three bridges in the Middletown area going over Route 283 is now underway, after rehabilitation of the Vine Street bridge started recently.

Traffic on the Vine Street bridge will be down to two lanes throughout the project, expected to last until the end of November or early December.

In addition, traffic on the Union Street bridge crossing Route 283 in Lower Swatara Township will be restricted to one lane until that rehabilitation project is completed by the end of October, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

During the repairs, traffic on Union Street is being regulated by a traffic signal, similar to how one-lane traffic has been regulated on the bridge on Route 230 crossing Swatara Creek just east of Middletown.

Finally, the Newberry Road bridge in Londonderry Township will remain closed to all traffic until that project is finished sometime in mid-August, PennDOT has said.

All three bridge rehab projects are part of a larger $89 million project to reconstruct 6 miles of Route 283 from Eisenhower Boulevard to Route 341 in Londonderry Township.
