U.S. 522 bridge work scheduled

SELINSGROVE – The placement of an epoxy overlay on the U.S. 522 truss bridge spanning Penns Creek just north of Selinsgrove will begin on June 5.

The same detour that was used last year during the bridge construction will be implemented again. Northbound traffic will be detoured during the work. The detour will be U.S. 522, Market Street, state Route 35, U.S. 11-15 northbound. The local-traffic detour route will be Airport Road, Mill Road, state Route 204 and U.S. 522.

Prime contractor Susquehanna Supply Co. completed the majority of the work last year, but due to project delays the epoxy overlay had to be pushed back.

Weather permitting; this work will take approximately two weeks.
