Delays Tomorrow on Route 61 Northbound at Veterans Memorial Bridge


Montoursville, PA –  Motorists in Northumberland County can expect delays tomorrow on Route 61 northbound on the Veterans Memorial Bridge between Sunbury and Shamokin Dam.

A contractor is removing debris from several piers on the bridge. The right (driving) lane of Route 61 northbound will be closed tomorrow. There also will be periodic stoppages of both lanes of northbound traffic on the bridge.

Motorists should plan additional time for their travels, be alert and drive with caution through the work zone.

LTT Trucking is the contractor on this project, which includes removing debris from 11 river bridges in Columbia, Montour and Northumberland counties.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 860 traffic cameras.
