County Bridge Program

Bridge Capital Improvement Program

A bridgeYork County owns and maintains 90 bridges and shares joint ownership and maintenance responsibilities with Cumberland County and Adams County for an additional 11 bridges of varying types, sizes and ages. York County closely monitors the condition of these bridges through mandated inspections.

As these bridges require repairs or replacement, many factors go into determining a timeline for the work. The 2019 York County Bridge Plan (PDF), prepared by the York County Planning Commission, guides the York County Commissioners in their immediate and long-term funding decisions for the county bridges. 

Federal and state funds are an important part of the county's bridge program. When federal and state funds are approved for a project, the county will only need to incur 5% of the project cost. While state and federal funds are desirable to keep the county's cost to a minimum, they come with administrative and regulatory requirements that must be closely followed. Federal and state-funded projects may take 6 to 12 months longer than similar projects funded entirely with local funds.
