penndotTraffic will be affected in several areas of Williamsport over the weekend.

According to PennDOT, there will be a single lane closure on Route 220 northbound/Interstate 180 eastbound at the Route 15 northbound ramp bridge starting at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 23rd. Then, all northbound 220/eastbound Interstate 180 lanes will be closed from 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 24th, to 6:00 a.m. on Monday, September 26th.

PennDOT says the closures will allow for a crane to be set up that will remove a beam that was damaged on the Route 15 northbound bridge. An over-height load caused the damage.

West Fourth Street and Route 15 southbound will be used to detour traffic. The detour will be in place once again when workers set the new beam. That work is expected to take place from Monday, October 3rd, at 6:00 p.m., to Tuesday, October 4th, at 6:00 a.m.
While the work is being done, there will be intermittent single lane closures on Route 220 southbound/I-180 westbound.
