CUMRU TWP., Pa. - Recent rain has slowed a project aimed at fixing a falling rock problem on a stretch of Route 724 in Berks County, PennDOT said Wednesday.
The road between Interstate 176 and Route 10 in Cumru Township will remain closed until Thursday afternoon, according to PennDOT spokesman Ron Young, who told 69 News that the road is expected to reopen by 4 p.m.
Crews closed Route 724 last Monday so that they could address an ongoing problem with rocks breaking free from the adjacent hillside and falling onto the road, putting drivers in danger.
The project included replacing the fence that separates the hillside from passing travelers on Route 724.
