PENNDOT SR 2041 EMERGENCY BRIDGE REPAIR PROJECT

 

PennDOT is preparing a construction project on North Union Street (SR 2041/Township Road).  SR 2041, North Union Street bridge over PA 283, will be partially reconstructed, and a detour of North Union Street is required while the bridge is closed.

For southbound traffic on North Union Street approaching the SR 2041 bridge over PA 283, the Department is proposing to detour traffic off of North Union Street to follow Fulling Mill Road (SR 3002), Eisenhower Boulevard (SR 3001), and then back on to North Union Street via PA 283 eastbound.  For northbound traffic on North Union Street approaching the SR 2041 bridge over PA 283, the Department is proposing to detour traffic off of North Union Street onto PA 283 eastbound and then brought back to North Union Street via westbound PA 283 at the Vine Street exit.

PennDOT will provide this detour extending from September 1 to November 22, 2016 as shown on the attached plan:

 

DETOUR PLAN

 

 

Attention Residents:

 

We've been receiving numerous complaints about barking dogs.  With the summer weather here, many people like to keep their windows open or enjoy time in their yards.  The Township asks that you respect your neighbors and adhere to the Animal Noise Control Ordinance.  Thanks for your cooperation! 

 

 

ROAD CLOSURES: 

 

Richardson Road will be closed indefinitely starting Monday, April 25, 2016 due to a deficient bridge. The closure will be at the bridge over Laurel Run – Cross streets are Eisenhower Boulevard to the north and Brookside Drive to the south. All addresses will remain accessible up to the bridge but access to those addresses will now only be from a single direction.

Information will be forwarded when the bridge repairs or replacement are completed but this will be a long-term closure.

 

Effective Immediately - Highland Street in Lower Swatara Township is closed in both directions at the bridge/culvert over Laurel Run. The cross streets are Route 441 to the south and Keckler Road in Swatara Township to the north. The roadway is compromised to the point that it will not safely support vehicles. THIS WILL BE A LONG-TERM CLOSURE. All properties on this road will remain accessible from the north.
