PA 309 car and local truck delivery traffic will be detoured onto Kelayres Road/4th Street and Market Street/Blaine Street. PA 309 between Washington and Blaine Streets will remain open for pedestrian traffic, local car traffic and local truck deliveries. Local deliveries wishing to access the borough to the north of Sherman Street are being advised to use Interstate 81 at Exit 138 to PA 424 to PA 309 south.
