Orrs Bridge, over the Conodoguinet Creek in Hampden Township, Cumberland County, will be closed for the third phase of construction beginning Monday, Aug. 10, and will remain closed for approximately six weeks. The construction project, which began in April of 2019, is the largest project on Cumberland County’s list of bridge capital improvement projects.  

Traffic is currently using the original bridge while the new bridge is being constructed. However, to complete the project, the original bridge must be closed so that the roadway approaches can be constructed to connect traffic to the new bridge. Orrs Bridge provides a critical north-south link that connects dense residential neighborhoods with employment and services on the Carlisle Pike and Wertzville Road.
