Construction to Begin on Route 34 Bridge in South Middleton Township
Cumberland County Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership
Harrisburg, PA – Construction for the Route 34 (Carlisle Road) bridge, spanning Hunters Run in South Middleton Township, Cumberland County, is scheduled to begin during the week of June 4 as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
When construction begins, traffic will be maintained with one-way alternating traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year.
In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-237 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
