Quotes being sought for repairs at Ludlow bridge

August 20, 2012

LUDLOW – Quotes from contractors are being sought for repairs at the South Hillside Avenue bridge in Ludlow.
According to a state-sanctioned report issued earlier this year, the bridge is considered a “high priority” for maintenance.
C.C. Johnson & Malhorta (CCJM), an engineering firm from Camp Hill, filed the report after inspecting the bridge that crosses Two Mile Run near the Ludlow Post Office.
The company inspects bridges under an agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
The engineers claim Hamilton Township, as the owner of the bridge, has an “overall obligation to ensure that its structure does not present an unacceptable safety risk to the public.”
The township Board of Supervisors is in the process of seeking quotes from contractors for the work at the bridge. No timetable has been set for the start or completion of the repair work.
The bridge currently has a 12-ton weight limit. Signs listing the weight limit are posted at the bridge.
According to the inspection report, four support beams at the bridge have “holes rusted through.”
Despite its deteriorated condition, the bridge remains open to traffic.
