Norman Wood Bridge now re-open to traffic

The Route 372 Norman Wood Bridge over the Susquehanna River between Lancaster and York counties, reopened to traffic shortly before 12:00 p.m. Saturday.

The bridge had been closed to traffic since around 4:00 p.m. Friday due to an overturned tractor-trailer from the strong winds on the bridge. The winds prevented responders from being able to safely remove the truck from the roadway.

Bridge inspectors from PennDOT today assessed the damage to the bridge, which they say is minor. Wreckers safely uprighted the tractor trailer and removed it from the bridge this afternoon.

The Norman Wood Bridge is a two-lane, 21-span structure that was built in 1968 and carries an average of more than 4,300 vehicles daily.
