VIDEO HERE: Construction causes heavy traffic on Route 11/15

UPDATE: On the Friday before a holiday week, PennDOT started an unannounced road project on busy Routes 11 & 15 in Hummels Wharf. There were hour-long delays, and miles of backup. By early afternoon, PennDOT stopped the project and allowed traffic to flow again. Now the highway is down to the usual, long delays and backups. The full story on the delays…below.

SELINSGROVE – Road construction along Routes 11/15 is may make what is already a busy weekend, even busier.  PennDOT is doing microsurfacing on a two-thirds-of-a-mile stretch section of The Strip in Monroe Township beginning under the Routes 11/15 overpass north of Selinsgrove and ending south of Roosevelt Avenue.  Travel is down to one lane and flaggers are controlling traffic.  Work runs for 7:00a.m.-6:00p.m. daily and, weather permitting, is expected to be complete by Monday.
