PennDOT announces traffic pattern changes
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation today reported traffic patterns will change in two areas because of a major bridge construction project in White Township.
Beginning at 7 a.m. Tuesday, traffic on the Route 119 bypass between Route 422 and Route 110 will be delayed by “rolling stops” controlled by flaggers while contractors prepare to replace the bridge over East Pike.
PennDOT officials expect the work and the delays to be completed by 7 p.m.
East Pike will be closed from 6 a.m. Friday through Sunday night at midnight for work related to the Route 119 bypass bridge replacement.
Motorists will be detoured onto Stormer, Geesey and Airport roads and Route 286 while the work is completed.
Plum Contracting Inc. is the contractor for the $3.2 million bridge replacement project. PennDOT officials said the bridges are to be opened to traffic by the end of October, and additional work on the site will be completed in the spring.
While flaggers control traffic on the bypass on Tuesday, PennDOT urges drivers to slow down, pay attention and to prepare for long delays and congestion in the area.
