WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Construction is starting for a bridge project on Pa. 316 South, a heavily traveled route between Waynesboro and Hagerstown.
The Washington Township Supervisors recently received a letter from Whiting-Turner, the Baltimore company that won the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation contract. The letter stated work would start Monday and last for approximately six months.
Reconstruction of the bridge over the East Branch of the Antietam Creek will result in travel being restricted to single lanes, Township Manager Mike Christopher said.
Traffic flow will be controlled by traditional traffic signals with red, yellow and green lights, Christopher said. Lights will be installed on Lyons Road and Iron Bridges Road, which intersect with the highway, he said.
