CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Hamilton Township, Pa., bridge that washed out in a storm five years ago may have a permanent replacement by the end of the summer.

The Rumler Road Bridge in western Hamilton Township near Fort McCord couldn't withstand a 1998 storm and washed away, officials said.

The Hamilton Township Board of Supervisors helped put a temporary fix in place until a new span could be built.

The original one-lane bridge dated back to the 1930s, and the new plans include widening the structure to two lanes with timber railings and a slight curve reminiscent of its predecessor.

The Franklin County Board of Commissioners opened bids for the project from seven construction companies in Pennsylvania and Maryland Tuesday. The board will award a contract or reject all bids at 3 p.m. on March 4.

Officials said if a contract is awarded next week, construction will begin in April and the builder will have four months to complete the bridge.

The bids included:

  • Building Systems Inc., Hagerstown, $228,535.

  • Jay Fulkroad & Sons Inc., McAlisterville, Pa., $229,086.
