Galloway Road Bridge

Section S1 - S.R. 2023 Bridge

Back to Completed Construction

Project Description

As part of the Interchange Project the existing Galloway Road Bridge over the Pennsylvania Turnpike has been replaced to prepare for future additional Turnpike traffic lanes.

The main supports (abutments) of the bridge have been moved further apart. The new bridge is significantly longer than the former bridge and includes two 12-foot wide travel lanes, 8-foot wide shoulders and a pedestrian sidewalk on the east side of the bridge.

The new bridge also has two spans with a new support (pier) in the Turnpike median.
