Mulberry Street Bridge in Harrisburg to close for repairs

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Harrisburg’s Mulberry Street bridge will close for construction beginning August 3.

According to PennDOT, crews will apply an epoxy-aggregate overlay to protect the new bridge deck from water penetration and deterioration.

A detour route that follows 13th Street, Market Street and 4th Street will be in place.

The bridge is expected to reopen on August 17.

The construction is part of a $12.2 million rehabilitation project that started in March 2014.

The bridge, originally built in 1909, connects the Allison Hill section of Harrisburg to the city’s transportation center and downtown area.
