Traffic changes on North Center Avenue TONIGHT

If you normally drive on Route 601 (North Center Avenue) in Somerset near the Turnpike interchange, this is for you!

A new traffic pattern is needed to keep motorists and workers safe during the construction of a replacement bridge on North Center Avenue carrying traffic over the PA Turnpike at milepost 110.

Beginning Wednesday, July 11, traffic will be diverted to a two-lane temporary bridge adjacent to the existing North Center Avenue bridge. A pedestrian walkway will also be attached to the temporary bridge for use during construction.

Some delays are expected while flaggers direct traffic during the traffic switch to the temporary bridge from 8:30 tonight until 11:00 tomorrow morning.
