PennDOT is reminding motorists about a detour affecting traffic coming in to and out of  Union City.

A bridge rehabilitation project has closed Route 97 just north of Union City.   Drivers are expected to follow the posted detour which uses Routes 8, 6, and 19.  Non-local traffic should avoid using township-maintained dirt roads, as they are not constructed to handle high volumes of traffic or large vehicles.   Union LeBoeuf road has been also been closed to local traffic, due to weight restrictions.  The closure is expected to remain in place until August 3rd.
