Bad bridge Carpenter Road crossing is a three-municipality problem
The Carpenter Road bridge is deteriorating, rapidly.
That was the report given by Warwick Township public works superintendent Dean Saylor during the March 21 supervisors meeting.
He said maintenance on the bridge that spans Hammer Creek will begin within a few days. And, due to its location, repair costs will be shared by Warwick, Ephrata and Clay townships. A total cost was not reported.
The main issue with the bridge, Saylor explained, is rust.
Temporarily closing the bridge until proper repairs can be made, in addition to abandoning it, are among the options on the table. Saylor said weight restrictions were reduced within the past four years, and it may not be long before those limits are reduced again.
Township supervisor Herb Flosdorf recommended the matter be turned over to the township’s solicitor for review and to hold a public hearing, perhaps as early as next month.
Township manager Dan Zimmerman described the proposed work as maintenance, dealing with some of the rust and then undercoating and repainting the steel structure. Currently, the bridge is reportedly safe for traffic. More BRIDGE, page A3
