— SHAMOKIN DAM — A maintenance crew is set to open the new bridge along the Old Trail on Friday.

The state Department of Transportation bridge crew replaced the old bridge, built in 1932, carrying Old Trail Road over a tributary to the Susquehanna River. The previous bridge was structurally deficient.

Once the new bridge is in service on Friday, the detour will be lifted, a PennDOT spokesman said,

Guiderail will be installed at a later date.
