Rt. 897 bridge reconstruction begins in E. Earl
On behalf of Governor Tom Corbett, PennDOT District 8 announced that March 6 preparatory work began on a project to repair the 48-year-old Route 897 bridge over the Conestoga River south of Terre Hill Borough in East Earl on May 7.
The $624,595 contract was awarded to Deblin, Inc., of Mechanicsburg, Cumberland County, and includes rehabilitation work on two bridges in Lancaster County, Route 897 over Conestoga River in East Earl Township and Route 23 over Donegal Creek in East Donegal Township. Repairs under this construction contract are intended to help extend the service life of each bridge before it is necessary to replace the structure.
PennDOT advises travelers that May 6 they may encounter daytime lane restrictions with flaggers directing traffic through the work zone as crews install temporary traffic signals that will assist in alternating traffic through the work zone during the staged construction phases.
Starting May 7, crews will set concrete barrier that will restrict Route 897 traffic to a single lane around the clock for up to 82 days as temporary traffic signals help alternate traffic through the work zone while one half of the bridge is repaired at a time.
Upon completion of the work in the southbound lane of the bridge, the concrete barriers and traffic signals will be reset and traffic will use the newly repaired section of the bridge as the remaining half is rehabilitated.
Route 897, known as Weaverland Valley Road south of Terre Hill, averages 5,200 vehicles traveled daily. Repairs to the Route 897 bridge are scheduled to be completed by August.
