Section of East Third Street to reopen
While one section of roadway east of downtown Williamsport is reopening, another section of roadway — Warrensville Road as it crosses the municipal line between Loyalsock and Eldred townships — will remain closed.
East Third Street between State and Basin street reopens Friday. The now-completed upgrades were part of the Gateway Project, a reconstruction project which partnered the City of Williamsport, Lycoming College, and the state Department of Transportation.
Meanwhile, Warrensville Road remains closed from Mosteller Road in Eldred Township to Lick Run Road in Loyalsock Township due to safety concerns stemming from an embankment failure, according to PennDOT.
“The embankment failed due to the numerous flooding events and above average rainfall that occurred prior to the closure,” Lloyd Ayres, PennDOT engineer in the design unit, said. “The flooding events washed away portions of the base/bottom of the slope.”
