LEHIGHTON -- PennDOT has made some improvements to the traffic flow through a detour around a bridge project in Carbon County.
On Friday, drivers dealt with backups because the southbound lanes of Route 209 on the McCall Memorial Bridge in the Lehighton area were closed.
PennDOT said the traffic signal timing was adjusted.
Crews who were working on the project said traffic was running more smoothly on Monday. PennDOT expects the situation to improve as drivers get used to the detour.
