PennDOT lifts restrictions on Norman Wood Bridge

HOLTWOOD, Pa. (WHTM) – PennDOT has removed weight and width limits on trucks that cross the Norman Wood Bridge.

Vehicles had been limited to those under five tons and no more than eight-feet wide.

PennDOT announced Monday that it has also removed temporary traffic signals that had been in place since October 16.

Drivers will still share a single lane while repair crews are on the bridge, but flaggers will be used to control traffic through the work zone.

The bridge that carries Route 372 over the Susquehanna River between southern Lancaster and York counties was closed for more than two weeks Sept. 28 when inspectors found an 8-foot crack in a steel girder.

The girder has been repaired by bolting two steel plates over the crack.
