HARRISBURG, Pa.– The bridge that carries Rutter Road (State Route 4004) over Armstrong Creek in Jackson Township, Dauphin County, will closed to all traffic early on Tuesday morning, Aug. 30. The bridge closure is necessary for a construction project to replace the bridge. The bridge, which is located two miles west of Enders, was originally built in 1931 and is currently classified as structurally deficient. Approximately 300 vehicles use this bridge on a daily basis.

Traffic will be detoured around the bridge closure by way of Route 225. Enders Road (SR 4006) and Rutter Road SR 4004). The work will be performed by CH&D construction, and is expected to be complete by late November.

The bridge replacement is part of the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, 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.
