PUNXSUTAWNEY — Motorists in Punxsy continue to deal with two major detours, as the Route 119 Ridge Avenue/Elk Run bridge continues to be closed along with the Saw Mill Run Route 36 / West Mahoning Street bridge in the west end remaining closed. Ben White, Punxsutawney Borough manager, said that when school resumes, both detours will continue in place.

To see a full story on the precautions being taken and other points, see Thursday's edition of The Spirit.
