Work begins on Old Trail in Shamokin Dam
SHAMOKIN DAM – PennDOT has announced some road projects for next week in the Central Susquehanna Valley including a project on the Old Trail.
On Monday in Shamokin Dam, work will begin to replace a small bridge along the Old Trail. The bridge was built in 1932 and carries the Old Trail over a tributary to the Susquehanna River. The bridge will be closed by late Monday morning. The detour will use Park Road, Routes 11 and 15 and 11th Avenue. The bridge will remain closed until late November.
Also, a section of Irish Valley Road in Shamokin Township will be closed starting Wednesday. A large pipe will be replaced between Renns Road and Poplar Road. The road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday only and a detour will be in place using Route 890 and Cherry Street. (Ali Stevens)
