road closed

CAERNARVON TWP, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that the California Road (Route 1019) bridge spanning an unnamed tributary to the Conestoga River in Caernarvon Township, Lancaster County, will be closed next week for drilling activities in advance of a bridge replacement project.

Weather permitting, the bridge will be closed from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday, September 26 through Wednesday, September 28. A detour will be in place during work hours using Route 23, Glick Road and Valley View Road.

PennDOT proposes to replace the bridge with a precast concrete box culvert and widen the bridge to allow for two lanes of traffic. This work is expected to be performed during the 2024 construction season.
