Keyser Avenue to Close for Three Days

Dunmore – From the evening of Friday, September 13 to the morning of Monday, September 16, Keyser Avenue will be closed between Division/Dalton Street and Continental Street/Ransom Road. The road is being closed in order to replace a box culvert at the bridge over the Lucky Run Creek near Continental/Ransom Road. The decision was made to completely close Keyser for this weekend in order to expedite the necessary repairs. If the repairs were done without closing the road, it would have been necessary to build a temporary bridge over the creek, thereby increasing the cost and extending the expected completion date of the work.

The intersection at South Keyser and Ransom Road (entrance to McDade Park) will remain open. A detour will be posted and police will be on duty to ensure local residents have complete access to any section of Keyser Avenue throughout duration of the work.
