Traffic slows holiday travelers
UNDATED — Some extremely heavy traffic volume is slowing travel in The Valley.
Southbound roads in particular are slow, but all directions are reported backed up. Motorists traveling from Northumberland, to Shamokin Dam, and vica versa, are encountering long waits.
Snyder, Union and Northumberland County Communications Centers report no crashes.
Elsewhere, motorists tell us there are long waits to get on–and along–Routes 11 & 15 in Shamokin Dam and Hummels Wharf.
Motorists locally are advised to allow extra time for travel and be aware of possible long delays.
The bottleneck that is Routes 11 & 15 is particularily hard it with drivers reporting ‘near gridlock’ conditions.
