Valley Street detours to change
LEWISTOWN — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Thursday that its Valley Street detour in Lewistown Borough will enter its second phase beginning Tuesday.
The contractor for a municipal waterline project will close Valley Street between Route Ort Valley Road and Walnut Street and implement detours for northbound and southbound traffic.
The northbound detour will see traffic take Walnut Street to U.S. 522 to U.S. 22/322 westbound and then the Electric Avenue interchange before merging back onto Valley Street.
The southbound detour will see traffic take Ort Valley Road to U.S. 22/322 eastbound to the U.S. 522 North/Walnut Street interchange and Logan Street to Walnut Street before merging back onto Valley Street.
The detours will be in place during daylight hours only. The contractor will lift them daily after work is complete. PennDOT expects the detours to be in place for approximately two months. The contractor will lift them sooner if work progress allows.
