Drivers advised to

avoid five-way light

LOCK HAVEN — The traffic signal pole at the five-way light — the intersection of Bellefonte Avenue, East and West Church Street and Corning Street — is being replaced, with the work starting yesterday and continuing through today, weather permitting.

The signal will be entirely out of service today, and temporary traffic control measures, including flagmen, will be used.

The city has hired Lecce Electric Company to do the work.

Drivers are advised to be alert while driving in this area and avoid the area if possible.
