Bridge Replacement Project to Begin on Route 741 (Strasburg Road) in Paradise Township, Lancaster County Weather permitting, detour to begin March 11; work is part of three-bridge contract

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that a bridge replacement project is scheduled to begin on Route 741 (Strasburg Road) in Paradise Township, Lancaster County. The bridge spans Eshleman Run just to the east of Keneagy Hill Road.

Weather permitting, the bridge will be closed on Monday, March 11. An approximately 69-day detour will be in place using Belmont Road and Route 896. A temporary traffic signal will be in place at the intersection of Belmont Road and Route 896 to assist with traffic movements at the intersection while the detour is in effect.

This work is part of a contract to replace three bridges. In addition to the Route 741 bridge, bridges on Route 2014 (Maple Shade Road) over Coopers Run in Colerain Township, and Route 2031 (Walnut Run Road) over Walnut Run in Strasburg Township, will be replaced.

Work on the Maple Shade Road bridge is expected to start later this spring, and on the Walnut Run Road bridge this summer. Press releases will be issued prior to the start of work on each bridge.

Doli Construction Corporation, of Chalfont, PA, is the prime contractor on this $2,020,305 project. Work is expected to be completed by September 4, 2024.
