The bridge that carries Route 934 over the Norfolk Southern Railway in Annville, Lebanon County, was restored to two-way traffic late Thursday night.
The bridge had been restricted to a single lane of traffic since mid-April, with traffic signals controlling each direction of traffic.
According to PennDOT, work on the overall project, which includes the portion of Route 934 between the bridge and Route 422 will continue. Motorists may encounter single-lane traffic restrictions with flaggers assisting them through the work zone in this area daily between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m..
The work to be done includes installing 500 feet of sidewalk, 14 curb-cut ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and mountable curb along the centerline of the road. That work should be completed in December, with paving scheduled for the spring.
The contractor on the $2.95 million bridge replacement/road improvement is J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Pennsylvania. Nearly 8,900 vehicles use the bridge and this portion of Route 934 on a daily basis.
