Bonnymead Bridge Re-Opening

The Bonnymead Bridge, located on Bonnymead Avenue in the Lenker Manor development in Swatara Township, is scheduled to be open to traffic this Friday, November 8, 2013, according to the bridge contractor.

The existing bridge structure carrying Bonnymead Avenue over Spring Creek deteriorated to the point of requiring replacement. The project involved replacement of the bridge span with a new, slightly wider span for better traffic flow and pedestrian safety with the addition of new sidewalks.

The bridge has been closed since July 2013 and was scheduled to open by the end of October. Unexpected weather delays pushed the opening to this Friday.
