Bridge Maintenance

The Public Works Department maintains seven municipal bridges, as listed below:

LPT-1 T-432, Crums Mill Road over Paxton Creek
LPT-2 T-495, McIntosh Road over Paxton Creek tributary
LPT-3 T-302, Geraldine Drive over Paxton Creek tributary
LPT-4 T-501, Goose Valley Road over Paxton Creek tributary
LPT-7 T-392, Peiffers Lane over Spring Creek
LPT-9 T-407, Red Top Road over Beaver Creek tributary
LPT-10 T-601, Jonestown Road over Beaver Creek

These bridges are inspected by an engineering consultant under contract to Dauphin County to identify required maintenance and to ensure their safety for the motoring public. Recommended maintenance is carried out by Township staff or contractors, as necessary.

Bridge LPT 10 on Jonestown Road over Beaver Creek is identified in the 2013 Transportation Improvement Program for the Harrisburg Area Transportation Study. Such identification will provide for the eventual replacement of this bridge.

All other bridges in Lower Paxton Township are owned and maintained by PENNDOT.

  • Rock protection along upstream and downstream wing walls
  • Cleaning and flushing of bridge deck and scuppers
  • Pavement surface repairs and sealing
