CHERRY RIDGE TWP.- The bridge on Owego Turnpike, SR 3028 over SR 191 in Wayne County will be closed starting on Monday, Feb 18, PennDOT announced.

The span will stay closed through the spring of 2014 to remove the existing structure and replace it with a new single span composite of a concrete spread box beam bridge. A short detour will be in place.

Motorists are advised to use an alternative route when traveling in the area. A nearby road which bypasses the bridge is Shuman Road, which connects Route 191 south of the bridge to Owego Turnpike, just before the Cherry Ridge Airport.

If traveling north on the Owego Turnpike from Hawley towards Waymart, one can take a left onto Shuman Road to 191, then right on 191 underneath the Owego overpass and then left onto the ramp that takes you back onto Owego Turnpike.
