BELLEFONTE – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation advises drivers that travel delays are likely Thursday and Friday, May 21-22 on Route 26/I-99 northbound near the Bellefonte/161 interchange of Interstate 80.

The northbound right lane and shoulder will be closed so that crews can set a new overhead sign structure along the roadway. The sign work could lead to traffic back-ups and delays. Rolling road blocks may also be used as installation takes place.

Drivers will also be able to find updated information and notification of the delays on roadside message boards.
