The Seitzville Road bridge on the border of Springfield and Codorus townships has been closed since October when an inspection deemed it unsafe after the flooding in September from Tropical Storm Lee.

A reader asked me this week what the plan is for it.

It will be fixed, said Steven Malesker, senior project manager with C.S. Davidson, Inc.

York County, which owns the bridge, has been waiting for money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to come in to make the repairs.

“It’s significant repairs that need to be made,” Malesker said.

The bridge was undermined about 8 feet horizontally at one of the abutments, Malesker said. The repairs are estimated to cost between $50,000 and $60,000.

The county has obtained a permit from the state Department of Environmental Protection to make the repairs, Malesker said.

Officials plan to put the project out for bid soon, and the bridge should be back in service by September or October.
