James May, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), said that the contractor that will do the repairs, Fahs Ralston, is waiting for 12 steel stingers to be delivered, and that should happen in about two weeks. Work will begin when the stringers arrive and will last for about three weeks.
As was the case during repairs in 2011, the bridge will be closed to vehicle traffic from about 8 a.m. to 12 noon, and again from 1 p.m. to about 4:30 p.m.
May said the process of constructing a new $13-million bridge is still on track to begin in 2016, although details are still being worked out between officials in Pennsylvania and New York.
