75 state bridges will have weight restrictions in South Central Pa.

PennDOT says 75 state-owned bridges will be posted with new or lowered weight restrictions to ensure safety and slow the deterioration of the bridges.
Last Thursday, PennDOT Secretary Barry Schoch authorized new or added weight restrictions on 1,000 structurally deficient bridges statewide.
Thirty-six other bridges in the District 8 area covering Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and York counties will also see restrictions.
PennDOT will begin posting new weight limits on these bridges as soon as Thursday.
Notifications to school-bus operators, emergency service providers, and other local officials will begin today. Posting on local bridges will take place at a later date after PennDOT discusses these changes with local bridge owners.
