HARRISBURG, Pa. – York County based Kinsley Contraction, Inc will begin repairs next week on the Burgs Lane bridge over eastbound Route 30 in Hellam Township. The bridge is located between Hallam and Wrightsville. PennDOT contracted Kinsley to do the repairs for $265,206. The project should be completed by the end of August.

BURGS2CaptureThe bridge was struck and damaged last November when a backhoe hauled on a flatbed trailer on eastbound Route 30 struck and damaged the fascia beam of the bridge span over eastbound Route 30. Emergency repairs at the time involved the removal of the damaged beam. This repair project will involve the installation of a replacement fascia beam and the rebuilding of the deck in this portion of the bridge over eastbound Route 30.

Traffic will continue to be maintained on Burgs Lane bridge during the project. On eastbound Route 30, motorists should be aware that traffic may be restricted from time to time to a single lane during the overnight hours between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. This will occur on Monday night, June 20, for example, as construction crews examine the structure.

Preparing to lift beam from Burgs Lane BridgeIt will be necessary in early July to close eastbound Route 30 for one to three nights between midnight and 5 AM for work involving the setting of the new bridge beam. Eastbound Route 30 traffic will be detoured on those nights by way of Kreutz Creek Road (State Route 1014), Route 462, and 9TH Street and Cool Springs Road (both designated as SR 1016) back to eastbound Route 30.

PennDOT will announce the nighttime closures in advance, after the dates have been finalized.
