A few Dauphin County-owned bridges affected by flooding remain closed for nearby road repairs

HARRISBURG, PA (July 30, 2018)– Inspection teams from Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc. engineers have determined that most Dauphin County-owned bridges can reopen, while a few others remain closed due to nearby roadway damage, Commissioners Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and George P. Hartwick, III said today.

The following is a list county-owned bridges that remain closed as of 3 p.m. today:

Fiddlers Elbow Road Bridge
over the Swatara Creek between Derry and Lower Swatara townships. A bridge inspection is being performed today. The bridge is expected to be reopened by mid-morning on July 31.

Ridge Road Bridge over the Armstrong Creek in Halifax Township. While no damage was found to the bridge, the span is closed because of damage to the approaching roadway.

Engle Road Bridge over the Conewago Creek between Londonderry and Conoy townships. Although the bridge was not damaged, the span is closed due to damage to the approaching roadway.

The commissioners remind residents and business owners who had property damage from flooding last week to report any losses to their municipality so that the county and state can compile a comprehensive damage report with the federal government for potential assistance.
