Traffic Shift This Sunday on WB Route 30 at Median Barrier Project on Route 30 (Wrights Ferry) Bridge Between Lancaster and York Counties


Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that traffic will be shifted this Sunday on westbound Route 30 at the nearly 1.5-mile median barrier project on the Route 30 (Wrights Ferry) Bridge connecting Lancaster and York counties. The bridge spans the Susquehanna River between Hellam Township in York County and Columbia Borough in Lancaster County.

Weather permitting, work will begin to shift traffic at 4:00 PM Sunday, January 14. Westbound Route 30 traffic will be shifted toward the median so the contractor can paint lines and perform steel repairs under the bridge from the right shoulder. A lane restriction will be in place while the shift is implemented, after which westbound Route 30 will be open to two lanes of traffic.

This pattern is expected to remain in place for about a month. A lane shift currently in effect on eastbound Route 30 will remain in place.

This project includes improvements to the median barrier and other construction activities. 

JD Eckman, Inc., of Atglen, PA is the prime contractor on this $5,247,787 project. Work is expected to be completed by November 2024.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
