Beginning on Jan. 23, 2013, the Main Street Bridge in Old Forge will be closed for approximately one year to complete a $3.7 million total bridge replacement. The 72 year-old bridge, which spans the Lackawanna River, carries approximately 7,000 vehicles a day.

The updated detour is as follows:
Car detour for southbound traffic is Main Street to Bridge Street to Lonesome Road back to Main Street (reverse for northbound)
Updated truck detour for southbound traffic is Main Street to Bridge Street to Foote Ave to Phoenix St. to Main Street (reverse for northbound)

In addition to the replacement of this state-owned bridge, there is also a county bridge closed on SR 3024 in Moosic.

The detour for that bridge is:
Car detour for southbound traffic is SR 3024 to Spring Street to US 11 to Main Street - near the Moosic Diner (reverse for northbound)
Truck Detour for southbound traffic is SR 3024 to Bridge Street to Foote Ave to York Ave to Main Street (US 11) to Main Street ?? near Moosic Diner (reverse for northbound)
