Additional Session Added to In-Person Open House for Market Street Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Open house sessions now set for 10:00 AM to noon; 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, Tuesday, January 18

Harrisburg, PA – An additional session has been added to the open house for the project to rehabilitate the Route 3012 Market Street Bridge spanning the Susquehanna River between the City of Harrisburg in Dauphin County, and Front Street in Wormleysburg in Cumberland County.

The additional session will be from 10:00 AM to noon, Tuesday, January 18, at Kinsley Hall, 20 Market Street, Wormleysburg, PA 17043.

This open house session is in addition to the open house already scheduled for 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on the same day at the same location. The new session was scheduled due to Covid-19 concerns to reduce in-person traffic and offer additional space for attendees.

Information, including a project overview, project displays, and methods to provide comment is available on the project website at Market Street Bridge. 

The department is accepting comments on the project through Friday, February 11.

The purpose of the online plan display and future open house is to introduce the project, depict the preferred alternative, and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The project documents can be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested. If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, contact Heidi Mertz, PE, Project Manager, at (717) 787-3324, or email at
