Road projects are popping up
MONTOURSVILLE — PennDOT has announced a few road projects this spring:
— Route 61 Bridge rehabilitation near Shamokin starts Monday March 11. Workers will rebuild the bridge over Shamokin Creek near Tharptown in CoalTownship. Traffic will be maintained but reduced to a single lane in each direction. All work is scheduled for completion by Nov. 1.
— Between Trevorton and Shamokin PennDOT starts a paving project on Route 225 March 11. First drainage improvements, then repaving, will lead to some delays for motorists. The work along Route 225 extends from one mile east of Trevorton to the intersection with Route 61 at Shamokin. Work is scheduled for completion by July 3.
— In Mifflinburg, PennDOT will conduct a public meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6 at the Mifflinburg Area Middle School regarding the Route 45, Chestnut Street, reconstruction project. The purpose of the meeting is to apprise the public of the status of this project, scheduling, and detour routes. Route 45 is being rebuilt, widened, new curbs and sidewalks installed and large trees removed from the route.
