The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 5 begins tomorrow, January 2, 2018, work to replace the PA 191 “Stites Tunnel” Bridge over Paradise Creek in Pocono Township, Monroe County.

Work includes replacing the PA 191 Bridge over Paradise Creek and bridge roadway approach structures, installing new guide rail and line paint, and concrete repairs to the roadway tunnel under the Delaware Lackawanna Railroad.  

PennDOT anticipates detours to be implemented on January 7.

Starting January 7 and lasting through the completion of the project, PA 191 will be closed and detoured between PA 447 and Stites Mountain Road. The posted passenger vehicle detour utilizes PA 715 and Clubhouse/Cherry Lane Road. A separate posted truck detour routes truck traffic on PA 447 and PA 390.
