UPDATE: PennDOT postponed the closure until Wednesday, May 23.


Drivers using Interstate 80 eastbound in Venango County will be forced to take a detour Tuesday.

The lanes will be closed from Exit 35 (Route 308, Clintonville) to Exit 42 (Route 38, Emlenton) from 8:30 a.m. until noon May 22.

The closure is needed to remove a disabled tractor trailer from the median, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

A detour will be posted using Routes 308, 208 and 38.

Drivers are asked to watch for flaggers at the intersection of Route 208 and Route 308 in Clintonville Borough.
