Traffic diversion: Traffic on North Center Avenue in Somerset will be diverted to a temporary bridge over the Pennsylvania Turnpike beginning Wednesday to allow for the replacement of the existing bridge. Delays are expected while flaggers direct traffic from 8:30 p.m. Tuesday to 11 a.m. Wednesday during the switch to the temporary bridge, according to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. The temporary bridge has two lanes. A pedestrian walkway will be attached to the temporary bridge for use during construction. The current posted detours for Water Works Road and Snyder Street will continue until the completion of the project in the fall of 2019.
