Gordon Street Bridge Reopening

Gordon Street Bridge Reopening

The Gordon Street Bridge reopened to traffic at 12 noon on Friday, September 10!

The bridge on West Gordon Street and over Jordan Creek in the city was closed for reconstruction on Monday, November 30, 2020.  The span passed its final inspection this morning.

Kinsley Construction, Inc. from York, PA performed the work in a little over nine months.  

The more than $3.3 million project was scheduled to begin in March 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic which at the time had halted all construction projects.

Detour routes had been in place. Normal eastbound travelers have been traveling south on Fifth Street to east on Hamilton Street to north on American Parkway to Gordon Street.  Normal westbound travelers have been traveling south on American Parkway to west on Linden Street and north on Sixth Street.
