Closure will allow traffic to move onto new Centerville Road bridge
Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that the ramps at the Centerville Road/Route 30 Interchange in East Hempfield Township, Lancaster County, are scheduled to be closed the weekend of Nov. 3-6 to allow the contractor for the Centerville Road Interchange Improvement Project to switch traffic onto the new Centerville Road bridge spanning Route 30.
Weather permitting, ramps at the Centerville Road/Route 30 Interchange will be closed from 9:00 PM Friday, November 3, to 6:00 AM Monday, November 6, so the contractor can make the switch to the new bridge.
A detour will be in place using Route 741 (Roherstown Road), Route 462, and College Avenue.
During this time, there will be lane restrictions under flagging on Centerville Road so the contractor can excavate, pave, and install temporary barrier and temporary traffic signals at the interchange.
Once the switch is complete, the contractor can begin demolishing the existing bridge. This work is expected to continue through the winter months.
This work is part of the Centerville Road Interchange Improvement project, which consists of structure replacement, Superpave overlay, base replacement, roadway widening, milling, guiderail improvements, drainage improvements, pavement markings, ADA improvements, traffic signal improvements, and other miscellaneous construction.
The project includes work on Centerville Road from Cornerstone Drive to Marietta Avenue (Route 23), and Marietta Avenue from Centerville Road to Stony Battery Road. The project is primarily located in East Hempfield Township, though the section from Cornerstone Drive to Columbia Avenue is in Manor Township.
JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA is the prime contractor on this $36.3 million project. Work is expected to be completed by July 22, 2025.
