Rt. 22/322 bridge replacement on track for fall completion
York County-based G.A. & F.C. Wagman Inc. recently poured the concrete deck as work continues on the replacement of the eastbound Route 22/322 bridge that was damaged in a May tanker truck crash and fire.
Wagman bid $3.3 million on the project to replace the bridge superstructure over Interstate 81 in Susquehanna Township.
"We're going to be done this fall," said Todd Becker, vice president of operations.
The remaining work includes parapets and the approach coming in and out of the structure, Becker said.
The project was fast-tracked by the state Department of Transportation after being declared an emergency.
Lancaster County-based High Industries Inc. made the new beams for the bridge replacement. It made the original beams for the damaged bridge, which was built in 1977.
J.D. Eckman Inc. of Chester County is working on repairs to the structural steel and bearing pedestals and placing rebar in advance of the concrete pour on the I-81 north ramp to Route 22/322 westbound.
"PennDOT hopes to see both structures open to traffic by the end of November," said Mike Crochunis, a PennDOT spokesman.
