Construction Scheduled to Begin on Spanglers Mill Road Bridges in Lower Allen, Fairview Townships

Bridges to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership


Harrisburg, PA – Construction for two bridges carrying Spanglers Mill Road (State Route 2031) over the Yellow Breeches Creek in Fairview Township - and a Mill Race in Lower Allen Township at the Cumberland-York County line are scheduled to begin the week of June 11 - as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.

When both bridges close for full replacement, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along Lisburn Road (SR 2017), Route 114 and back on to Spanglers Mill Road (SR 4027). Construction of both bridges will be complete in November.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change. 

These bridges are referred to as JV-241 and JV-564 and are two of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is 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.
