TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Old Trail Road in Shamokin Dam

Susquehanna Valley — SHAMOKIN DAM — A maintenance crew from the state Department of Transportation today will begin the replacement of a small bridge on Old Trail Road in Shamokin Dam.

The existing 15-foot-long bridge was built in 1932 and carries Old Trail Road over a tributary to the Susquehanna River. The bridge is classified as structurally deficient.

Along with replacing the bridge, the maintenance crew will install new roadway approaches and guiderail.

The bridge will be closed today, and traffic will be detoured using Park Road, Routes 11/15, and 11th Avenue.

The bridge is expected to be re-opened by late November.

Motorists are advised to plan travels accordingly.
