Harrison City-Export Road in Penn Township is expected to remain closed to through traffic through tomorrow, Friday, so an existing sanitary sewer line can be relocated, according to PennDOT.

Though the road has been closed to through traffic between Route 130 and Raymaley Road, emergency vehicles and drivers going to the local businesses in the closure area have been permitted to go through the construction zone, PennDOT spokeswoman Valerie Petersen said.

State and local officials initially said the closure, which started Oct. 28, was expected to end after two days.

That closure was to be followed by another two-day closure last week.

The construction schedule was complicated, in part, when a contractor broke a water line Oct. 28.

State officials say the $2.1 million project to replace a bridge and realign the road will be completed in September 2014.
