SUNBURY - Route 147 between Second Street in Sunbury and Brush Valley Road in Upper Augusta Township will remain closed through this afternoon because of a rock slide, PennDOT officials said.

PennDOT closed the stretch of roadway as a safety precaution Wednesday because of a rainstorm. A few rocks had already fallen Wednesday morning.

Traffic is being detoured onto Brush Valley Road, Route 890 and Route 61 until further notice.

Jersey barriers will be installed today, and PennDOT is planning to extend the existing rock-fall fence farther north to address the recent rock slides at that location.
