LONDONDERRY TOWNSHIP, DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa.– The bridge that carries Newberry Road over Route 283 will close on Monday, June 12 for a period of about two months.

The closure is necessary for a rehabilitation project that includes substructure and concrete beam end patching, installing new expansion dams, and placing a latex-modified concrete overlay.

The bridge carries approximately 700 vehicles on a daily basis.

A signed detour will direct motorists around the bridge closure by Swatara Creek Road, Creek Road, and Schoolhouse Road.

The bridge should reopen to traffic around mid-August.
