North Union Street Bridge Construction

The PA Turnpike Commission has provided the Borough with the following tentative construction schedule for the replacement of the bridge which crosses over the Turnpike at 1090 N. Union Street:

September:                                   Tree clearing in the SE quadrant of the bridge

September, October:                   Middletown Electric will be relocating their aerial lines that cross the existing bridge.

October – December:                    All other utilities will be on site to relocate other aerial lines.  This could extend into 2021.

December:                                      The Commission will select a contractor and provide them with notice to proceed some time in December 2020.

January 2021:                                 The Commission’s contractor will begin work.   The remaining schedule will require input from the contractor therefore the following dates are very rough estimates;

Winter/Spring/Summer 2021:     Install temporary bridge and roadway east of the existing bridge

Fall 2021:                                          Shift traffic to the temporary bridge and roadway and begin demolition of the existing bridge

Winter/Spring/Summer 2022:     Construct new bridge and roadway along permanent alignment

Fall 2022:                                          Shift traffic onto new permanent bridge and roadway
