Greene Township bridge

The bridge carrying Route 233 traffic over Rocky Mountain Creek south of Caledonia State Park in Greene Township closes Tuesday for a superstructure replacement project.

It will take 81 days to complete the project. A short detour will be in place using an unnamed side road and Route 30 during that time. A temporary traffic signal will be in place on Route 30 at the intersection with the unnamed road.

READ: I-81 roadwork

This portion of Route 233, locally known as Rocky Mountain Road, averages more than 1,300 vehicles traveled daily.

PennDOT awarded the $569,000 contract on December 20, 2019, to Redrock Construction, Inc. of Lewistown Borough, Mifflin County. Work includes replacing the existing 102-year-old three-span concrete arch structure with a new two-span cast-in-place reinforced concrete slab. Approach pavement work, new guiderail, signs and pavement markings are also part of the project.

The existing Greene Township bridge, built in 1917, has a posted 15-ton weight limit. The new bridge will not have a weight limit.

The project includes roadway milling and paving work after the bridge is opened to traffic. Short-term single-lane alternating traffic patterns will be in place during that time..

Completion date for the project is October 2020 under the terms of the construction project.
