PennDOT is preparing a construction project on North Union Street

(SR 2041/Township Road). SR 2041, North Union Street bridge over PA 283,

will be partially reconstructed, and a detour of North Union Street is required while the bridge is closed.

For southbound traffic on North Union Street approaching the SR 2041
bridge over PA 283, the Department is proposing to detour traffic off of

North Union Street to follow Fulling Mill Road (SR 3002),

Eisenhower Boulevard (SR 3001), and then back on to North Union Street

via PA 283 eastbound. For northbound traffic on North Union Street approaching the SR 2041 bridge over PA 283, the Department is proposing

to detour traffic off of North Union Street onto PA 283 eastbound and

then brought back to North Union Street via westbound PA 283 at the Vine Street exit.

PennDOT will provide this detour beginning on Monday,

September 26.
