Man bitten by rabid raccoon in Delaware Water Gap


A stretch of River Road will be closed in the Poconos Tuesday for maintenance.

River Road will be closed on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area between the Hialeah Picnic Area up to park headquarters.

It will be shut down between midnight and 3 p.m. If work is completed earlier than expected, crews will reopen the road before 3 p.m.

Hialeah Picnic Area will remain open and access to the McDade Trail will be available at the Hialeah and Park Headquarters trailheads, park officials said.
