Lane Restrictions Scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday on Route 61

PennDOT has announced lane restrictions on Route 61 in Pottsville for Wednesday and Thursday.

The lane restrictions are to be between Bacon Street and Route 209/Mauch Chunk Street at Mady's Bridges.

The lane restrictions are scheduled for daytime hours between 9:00am and 3:00pm.

The lane restrictions are for work associated with the ongoing $10,568,416 project to replace the PA 61 “Mady’s” bridges (one over Reading Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad in the City of Pottsville and Palo Alto Borough, and the other over the Schuylkill River in the City of Pottsville). 

The project began in Jan. 2014 and is expected to be complete this fall.
