Emergency sewer work shuts down Route 100 in Bally

BALLY, Pa. - A portion of Route 100 in Bally is shut down after officials said a sewer line broke, and it needs to be replaced overnight.


There's no other way," said Leo "Boots" Mutter, Bally's borough manager. "We tried to do the best we could. It's one of those bad things. It's going to be inconvenient for a lot of drivers."

Route 100 is a major artery from Pottstown to Allentown, and PennDOT said to expect major delays. Sewer line work will finish around 4 a.m. or 5 a.m. Friday, but new pavement needs to be put down.

"Tear it apart, put the new one in, put everything back together," said Mutter.

Mutter said everything seems to be going according to plan. They just need one more thing:

"Just have to have a little patience," he said.
