- Impacts to Travel
To accommodate construction, vehicular thru traffic will be detoured around 91st Street using Normantown Road and Schoger Drive. During primary working hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., 91st Street between Wolf’s Crossing and Schoger will be closed to thru traffic. Local traffic, including delivery trucks, will be allowed to access 91st Street traveling westbound from Schoger Drive. After 5 p.m., 91st Street will re-open to one lane of westbound only thru-traffic.
Work will occur between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
Motorists traveling in this area are encouraged to use caution and be aware of flaggers and other construction workers.
