?Lane restrictions planned next week through Oct. 7

Harrisburg, PA – PennDOT announced today that an inspection of the Market Street Bridge (Route 3012) spanning the Susquehanna River between the City of Harrisburg and City Island in Dauphin County is planned for next week.

The inspection will be performed weekdays from 9 AM to 3 PM Monday, September 28, through Wednesday, October 7. The sidewalk and adjacent lane will be closed during those hours.

Closures are expected on the downstream (eastbound) side of the bridge on Friday, October 2, and Monday, October 5, and on the upstream (westbound) side of the bridge all other days. At least one lane will be open in each direction at all times. One sidewalk will remain open, as well.

Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to use caution when driving through work zones for their safety, as well as for the safety of the workers.

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.
