— SELINSGROVE — A $1.9 million project to rehabilitate the green steel  truss bridge on Route 522 over Penns Creek at Selinsgrove will begin Monday, with a detour for northbound traffic beginning April 3.

Prime contractor Susquehanna Supply Co. Inc. will begin traffic control set-up during the first week, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation spokesman Rick Mason said.

The contractor will make structural steel repairs to the bridge and replace the deck and sidewalk.

Northbound traffic will be detoured April 3 through Aug. 21.

The detour for through traffic will follow Market Street, Route 35, and Routes 11-15 northbound.

The local-traffic detour will use Airport Road, Mill Road, Route 204 and Route 522.

Pedestrian traffic access will be maintained throughout the project. Construction is expected to be completed by Nov. 1.
