Read in the local paper yesterday that according to PennDOT there may possibly be detours while this bridge is being replaced.I will say from looking at the roads around this bridge that there will be detours.I don't know why they said what they said about possible detours.This is a 2 lane,not 4 lane bridge like the Penn Street Bridge for example which is nearing completion and while it's being rehabilitated traffic is diverted to different lanes on the bridge,not detoured.
