Harney Road Bridge Replacement Project in Adams County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced a project to replace the superstructure of the bridge on Route 2014 (Harney Road) over Alloway Creek in Germany and Mount Joy townships, Adams County. The project aims to replace the current bridge, built in 1954, due to its deteriorating condition. The new superstructure will include steel I-beams and a lightweight concrete deck, and will be supported by the existing concrete abutments and pier. Additional enhancements will involve repairs to the substructures, placement of rock scour protection, roadway pavement reconstruction, and installation of guide rail. The project also includes widening the bridge to accommodate two 11-foot travel lanes and 2-foot shoulders.

Construction is set to start in Spring 2026 and is expected to take about 8 months, during which the bridge will be closed to traffic. A detour route will be provided. The average daily traffic volume for this section is 1,082 vehicles.

Public input is being sought through an online platform available on the PennDOT District 8 website, where an interactive comment form is available. The information will be accessible online until July 24, 2024.

For those requiring assistance, project documents can be provided in alternative languages or formats upon request. Concerns about discrimination can be directed to PennDOT’s Bureau of Equal Opportunity.
