HARRISBURG, Pa. – The bridge that carries Greble Road over Earlakill Run between the villages of Shirksville and Greble in Bethel Township, Lebanon County, reopened to traffic early this afternoon. The bridge had been closed since April 25 for a bridge replacement project. The original bridge was built in 1953 and had deteriorated to the point that it was classified as structurally deficient (SD). With the new bridge in place, this location is now removed from the list of SD bridges in Lebanon County.
PennDOT contracted with Lobar Site Development Corporation of Dillsburg, York County, at a cost of $798,749 to demolish the old structure and replace it with a new bridge. Greble Road is officially designated as State Route 1014 and averages a little more than 430 vehicles daily.
Creek between East Manchester and Conewago townships in York County reopened to traffic early this afternoon. The bridge, which is located just west of Bear Road, had been closed since August 18 for repairs by PennDOT maintenance crews to the bridge deck and substructure. This portion of Route 921 is known locally as Canal Road Extended. A little more than 6,200 vehicles use this road on a daily basis.
