Opening coming

October 18, 2012
Williamsport Sun-Gazette
Work continues Wednesday on the DuBoistown Bridge. The bridge will open to unrestricted traffic flow later in the day Nov. 16, following a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony. Access now is allowed to Susquehanna State Park and the Hiawatha riverboat on the DuBoistown side of the river. Demolition of the old structure has begun with workers removing parts of the deck. An explosion to bring down the rest of the structure will be done in two phases. The first phase will remove the three spans on the DuBoistown side of the river, probably in late November, said Rick Mason, of the state Department of Transportation. Following that, demolition will move to the Williamsport side for the remaining four spans. State Sen. E. Eugene Yaw, R-Loyalsock Township, offered an amendment to a House bill to honor U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Abram Howard, of Williamsport, who died July 27, 2010, at the age of 21 from injuries suffered in an ambush while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. If approved, the bridge will be designated as Lance Cpl. Abram Howard Memorial Bridge.
