City road closures expected overnight Thursday
Major road closures in the city are to be expected overnight on Thursday.
According to Superintendent of Public Works Joe Reinke, the Hickory Street Bridge, as well as well as Pennsylvania Ave. from Liberty to Hickory Streets, will be shut down starting 11 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9.
They are scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Friday morning.
Reinke said one of Penelec’s independent contractors, J.W. Didado Electric, will be placing underground wires during that time, necessitating the closure of that stretch of road and of the bridge.
Anyone needing to cross the river will have to use either the Glade Bridge at Warren’s east side or the Route 6 on and off ramps on Warren’s west end.
