CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – The reopening of Bernheisel Bridge in Middlesex Township has been delayed to no later than Feb. 12, Cumberland County officials announced Monday.
The 55-year old bridge over Conodoguinet Creek had been scheduled to reopen Friday. Authorities said there were fabrication delays for the safety railing and conflicts between guardrail installation and underground utilities.
The bridge was closed Oct. 15 so crews could replace the beams, deck, and barrier. Cracking in the beams had caused the bridge to be classified as structurally deficient.
