DANVILLE — DANVILLE – The contractor that built the Danville Dike Closure Project last year is preparing for a trial installation of the flood gate on Route 11 over Mahoning Creek later this month.
The trial installation will involve a short-term, overnight detour of Route 11 traffic, either for the Feb. 24/25 or Feb. 25/26 overnight period from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m.
If the weather does not cooperate, the test installation and detour will be moved out day by day for favorable weather conditions.
During the trial closure, the signed detour will use Route 11 to Northumberland Borough, Route 147, Route 45, Route 642 and Route 54 back to Danville or the reverse.
Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 680 traffic cameras. 511PA is also available by calling 5-1-1, and regional Twitter alerts are available on the 511PA website
