UPDATE: Work on Veterans Memorial Bridge postponed

UPDATE: PennDOT tells us work schedule for tomorrow on Veterans Memorial Bridge has been postponed to an unknown date.

SUNBURY – One lane is blocked on the Veterans Memorial Bridge, causing a major traffic backup into Sunbury. City Councilman Chris Reis tells us logs fell off a truck and onto the roadway. He says cranes are on the scene to help lift the logs off the road.

Traffic is backed up on Route 61 north/Front Street from the bridge heading out of Sunbury all the way past the Market Street light.

Reis says its about a half-hour delay to get to Selinsgrove or Northumberland from Sunbury. Motorists are encouraged to allow extra time.

PennDOT tells us crews will continue working to remove that debris into Friday as well. PennDOT says work tomorrow will last through the end of the work day.
