Mercer County road closure takes effect Monday

Posted: Updated:

Starting Monday, the 2.7 mile stretch of Route 208 in Springfield and Pine Townships in Mercer County is closing for continued road work.

Repairs have been underway for a few weeks, including milling, paving, updating drainage, road shoulders, guide rails, signing and pavement markings.

A replacement of a 10-foot bridge of Black Run with a precast reinforced concrete box culvert is also in the works. 

The project is scheduled for completion by mid-October 2017.

PennDOT says there will be separate car and truck detours. 

The car detour will use Irishtown Road (Route 2005), Route 58 and George Junior Road. 

The truck detour will use Interstate 79, Interstate 80 and Route 173.
