PennDOT Resumes Newport Road Bridge Replacement in Penn Township, Lancaster County

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that its contractor next week will resume a project to replace the bridge that carries Newport Road (Route 4030) over Boyers Run in Penn Township, Lancaster County.

The bridge, which is located just west of Sanctuary Road, and southeast of Locust Lane, closed in February. A detour is in place using Lebanon Road (Route 72) and Elizabethtown Road (Route 4008).

This project includes replacing the existing structure with a precast concrete box culvert, roadway approach improvements, new guide rail, signs and pavement markings and other miscellaneous construction.

JVI Group, Inc., of York Springs, is the prime contractor on this $384,874 project.

Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
