Cumberland County Commissioners Close Bishop Bridge

The Cumberland County Commissioners closed Bishop Bridge to all traffic effective June 30, 2014 until funding becomes available to repair or replace the bridge. Repairs to the bridge are estimated at approximately $500,000. According to Cumberland County Planning Department, the shortest timeframe to reopen the bridge even if funding was available today would be nearly three years due to PennDOT and Corps of Engineer approvals. The timeframe for full replacement is in excess of $3 million and 5 years.

Cumberland County owns 28 bridges throughout the county. At least 12 of the 28 bridges are structurally deficient and in need of repair or replacement. Due to the limited vehicular traffic on Bishop Bridge, which is estimated at 145 trips per day, it is not high on the priority list for funding.
