Replacement of a nearly 150-year-old bridge over the Quittapahilla Creek will begin this week in a project that may take through the end of the year.

The bridge, located on Syner Road between Old Forge Road in North Londonderry Township and Laurel Grove Road in North Annville Township, lies directly between both townships.

The existing three-span, 64-foot-long stone masonry arch bridge dates to 1880, according to PennDOT, and is currently in state-designated “poor” condition. It will be replaced with a two-span, two-lane precast concrete arch bridge.

Work is expected to begin Tuesday, May 24, and be completed by Jan. 4, 2023. A detour for Syner Road could be in place for the duration (see map above).

The $1.3 million project is being handled by Lobar Site Development of Dillsburg.
