Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has updated the detour for Route 6 traffic in the Corry area in Erie County.

The detour now uses Route 89, Turnpike Rd. and Conelway Rd. Drivers are asked to follow the posted speed limits.

PennDOT is reminding drivers, especially those in large vehicles, Lovell Rd. and Main St. should be used by bicyclists and local traffic only. They are posted with weight limits.

The change comes as work starts on a temporary crossing to carry Route 6 traffic over Baskins Run in Wayne Township. Work is expected to take approximately a month to complete, weather permitting.

The temporary stream crossing will be able to handle the car and truck traffic that typically uses that portion of the roadway. It will remain in place until a permanent bridge can be built.

IA Construction of Union City was awarded the $854,322.25 contract for the stream crossing. It is being paid with state emergency funds.
