Traffic in both directions on Interstate 79 in Franklin Park will be stopped intermittently Sunday morning, weather permitting, because of overhead utility work, PennDOT officials say.

Brief traffic stoppages of 15 minutes or less will occur between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. in the area just south of the Route 910/Wexford Bayne Road interchange, Exit 73. Crews under contract with Consolidated Communications Inc. will be performing cable work across I-79.

Additional slow traffic also might occur on I-79. Overall work is expected to conclude by 11 a.m.

PennDOT officials urge motorists to use caution, slow down and expect to stop when traveling on I-79 through the area.
