The bridge that spans Koch Road in Towamensing Township will be shut down for replacement from June 13 to Nov. 13.
Carbon County commissioners on Thursday announced the closure.
The arched, single-lane bridge, built in 1916, spans Pohopoco Creek. Commissioners have been planning to repair or replace it since 1999, when a bus company expressed concerns about its safety.
The $2 million project will be done by Fabcor Inc. of Jessup, Lackawanna County.
Fabcor was the lowest bidder for the project, offering to do the construction work for $1.35 million.
