At long last, the detours that have plagued Punxsy have ended, as the new bridge carrying Route 36 over Sawmill Run in Punxsutawney was opened to normal traffic patterns on Friday.
According to Deborah Casadei, PennDOT District 10 public information officer, work will continue on the project under flagger-controlled lane restrictions.
This $1,091,540 bridge replacement project is being completed by M & B Services, LLC of Clarion.
The bridge has been closed since August.
