MILANVILLE, PA — A detour is in place for motorists who will temporarily be unable to cross the Skinners Falls Bridge connecting Milanville, PA with Sullivan County, NY. During a routine inspection, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) officials recently identified the need for emergency closure of the bridge in order to repair the structure’s truss member cord.

PennDOT hasn’t yet determined when the bridge will reopen, but repair time is estimated to be three to four weeks, according to safety press officer, Mike Taluto.
