Lane Restrictions on Route 61 on Tuesday

Lane restrictions will be in place on Tuesday on Route 61 near Pottsville.

PennDOT has announced that bridge beams will be put in place on the new Route 61 Bridge over the Reading and Blue Mountain & North Railroads between Bacon Street  and US Route 209/Mauch Chunk Street.

The restrictions will be in effect from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

The work is part of a $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 by the end of 2016.
