One-way detour to be in place for 3 weeks on Route 144 in Bellefonte

Some motorists in Bellefonte will need to use a detour for a few weeks as work is done on state Route 144. Beginning Monday, a detour will be in effect in Bellefonte as retaining wall work takes place along Route 144, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The one-way detour will be for northbound traffic only. Drivers will use Route 144 (Pine Street/Mill Street) and Stoney Batter Road. The detour will be in place for about three weeks, PennDOT said. Southbound Route 144 in this area will remain open.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. Drivers should use caution in work zones, obey posted speed limits and always wear a seat belt, PennDOT said.
