Columbia bypass work to stop Route 30 traffic early Monday

COLUMBIA, Pa. (WHTM) – Traffic on Route 30 will be stopped five times between Sunday night and Monday morning while construction workers install new bridge beams at the new Route 441 bypass.

Traffic will be stopped in both directions each time one of the 37-ton beams is set in place on the new bridge between midnight and 5 a.m., according to a PennDOT news release.

Traffic may be stopped between 15 and 30 minutes.

Drivers are encouraged to use Route 462 as an alternate route.

PennDOT began work last year to build the Route 441 bypass on the west side of Columbia. The bypass will help direct truck traffic from traveling through downtown Columbia.

The $11.8 million bypass is scheduled to be finished and open to traffic by October.
