Montoursville, PA – Motorists who travel Route 220 northbound and southbound in Woodward Township, Lycoming County are advised that a bridge replacement and rehabilitation project will begin next week. This project will replace both structures carrying Route 220 over the Fourth Street off ramp and will also rehabilitate both structures over Antlers Lane and the Lycoming Valley Railroad.
This construction season, the contactor is scheduled to complete the replacement and rehabilitation of the northbound structures. Beginning in May, motorists traveling in both directions will be traveling on the southbound side of the highway. A moveable barrier system will separate north and southbound traffic. This barrier system will be moved daily to ensure two lanes of travel northbound for the morning commute and two lanes of travel southbound for the afternoon commute. During these times, the opposing direction of traffic will be restricted to one lane.
The southbound structures are scheduled to be completed next year.
Week of March 20
- The contractor is scheduled to begin access roads and guiderail work. This work will be completed using daily lane closures at off peak hours.
Motorists should be alert, slow down, expect delays, watch for changing traffic patterns, and drive with caution in the area. Motorists should approach crossovers with caution in the work zone.
Susquehanna Valley Construction Corporation is the prime contractor on this $18 million, multi-year bridge improvement project.
