Lovedale Rd Closing in Elizabeth TWP
Lovedale Rd is scheduled to close for a bridge replacement between Elizabeth Auto Care and Ross St on Monday July 31st 2017.
As part of Pennsylvania’s Rapid Bridge Replacement project, this small bridge pictured above will require both lanes to close during the process. The reason for the need to close both lanes is that these projects are utilizing a form of prefab structure that is ordered well before the bridge is to be replaced. They then dig out the old bridge, set the new supports in the ground and move in the new structure where it can then be surfaced to match the existing road.
This process is designed to save time and reduces the problems with closing a main travel artery from Elizabeth Borough to Elizabeth Twp for an undetermined amount of time. The plan is to have the entire bridge replacement completed in 5-6 weeks if everything goes well, including the weather. Hopefully it will be completed on schedule, just in time for the new school season!
#LovedaleBridge Schedule Update
Due to a long period of no active construction waiting for PAWC to get their crews on site, the entire project completion has been pushed back to possibly the end of September! Not sure why it took so long to get the underground boring crew out there, but thanks go out to all the residents that called the state to complain about the inactivity.
