Washed Out Road Near Danville Could Be Closed For Up To A Year

The fix for Bald Top Road in Mahoning Township, Montour County will not be a quick one. The township’s engineer says the permanent fix may not competed until the Spring of 2020. The road was closed on May 31st from Route 11 to Timberwood Drive after heavy downpours in late May and decades of erosion lead to a large wash out. Residents living on Bald Top need to take a rather lengthy detour using Route 54, 642, and Klein Road due to the closure. Officials say there have been reports that some motorists have been going around barriers to disregard the closure. Mahoning Township Police Chief Sean McGinley says those who disregard the barriers can be cited and fined.
