UPDATE: Route 11 Back Open After Rock Slide

UPDATE: PennDOT announced Route 11 reopened just before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

(Original story)

POINT TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- For the third time in less than a week, a rock slide has closed a road in Northumberland County.

Route 11 is closed from Point Township near Northumberland to just south of Danville at the Montour County line, according to PennDOT.

A detour is in place using Ridge Road, Route 147, Route 642, and Route 54.

The road was closed in the same area on Sunday and again on Friday.

PennDOT says the road will remain closed overnight. There is no word when it will be back open.

    The incompetence and corruption of PennDOT really is starting to shine through these days. So it’s acceptable to take a million dollar fire truck meant to protect the city of Sunbury to a township 20 minutes away so PennDOT doesn’t have to pay a contractor?

    Just saw this on tv, fire department working and 3 to 5 Penn Dot employees standing around.
