PennDOT: Traffic lane shift at St. Thomas bridge

Road work

A traffic lane shift starts Wednesday at a bridge replacement project on Route 30 in Saint Thomas Township, Franklin County. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is replacing the existing single span concrete T-beam bridge in half-widths. The bridge spans a Branch of Campbell Run at Campbell Run Road.

A single lane traffic restriction is in effect, with a shift from the eastbound to the westbound side of the bridge.

PennDOT warns motorists to stay alert and watch for stopped or slow-moving traffic.

This work is part of a project to replace or rehabilitate six bridges on Route 30 between Route 995 and Route 416 in Franklin County.

The multiple bridge project also includes:

  • The replacement of the existing 60-inch pipe culvert over a Tributary to Campbell Run in Saint Thomas Township;
  • The replacement of the existing single span concrete T-beam bridge over a Tributary to Back Creek in Saint Thomas Township;
  • The rehabilitation of the existing concrete arch culvert over a Tributary to Back Creek in Saint Thomas Township;
  • The rehabilitation of two existing concrete arch culverts, each of which span a Tributary to Back Creek in Hamilton Township.

This project is expected to be completed by August of 2023.
