Currently, the Lititz Pike bridge project is still in its Stage 2 configuration and is on schedule for an October completion. Stage 3 (currently scheduled for mid-June) is comprised of switching traffic to the new alignment together with using the new bridge, and resuming access to the both McGovern Avenue and North Duke Street.
Since the previous update, progress on the new bridge resumed with the placement of the steel beams last November. Concrete placement for the new bridge deck is tentatively scheduled for April 29th to be followed by the forming and concrete placement for the parapets on both sides of the bridge and atop the MSE (Mechanically Stabilized Earth) walls.
Keller Avenue has seen the new drainage completed for ½ of the intersection, approximately ½ of the curb placed, aggregate base placed, and the first layer of bituminous base course placed last week. Bituminous paving on the south side of the new bridge has been completed except for the final wearing course which will be placed in the fall as the project nears completion.
