Pa. 997 bridge work to close I-81 lanes

May 02, 2008

SCOTLAND, Pa. - Construction work related to the Pa. 997 bridge replacement project over Interstate 81 in Scotland will require a traffic-lane restriction in both directions on the interstate Monday night, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Starting at about 7:30 p.m. and continuing no later than 6 o'clock the next morning, I-81 will be restricted to a single lane in both directions in the vicinity of Exit 20 so that construction crews can safely install a concrete barrier along the shoulder, according to PennDOT.

This operation is in preparation for partial demolition of the existing overhead bridge that carries Pa. 997 over I-81.

Looking beyond Monday night, intermittent lane closures are anticipated in the coming weeks, and will be preceded by announcements from the department.
