TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Route 61 bridge near Shamokin


The Daily Item

SUNBURY — SHAMOKIN -  A contractor working on the Route 61 Bridge at Tharptown, near Shamokin, will readjust traffic onto the rehabilitated portion of the southbound Route 61 Bridge this week.

Traffic will be switched to run on the driving lanes only of the rehabilitated structure, with the passing lanes closed off in both directions.

The switch is dependent on line painting and barrier removal work as well as favorable weather, a spokesman for the state Department of Transportation said.

Motorists are advised to stay alert to the changing traffic patterns in this work zone. Be alert for the possibility of slow-moving or stopped traffic ahead of the work zone during these operations for the next few weeks.
