Editor's Note:
You will still be able to travel from the intersection of Route 447 & 191 north on Route 447 into Barrett.
You will NOT be able to take Route 191 North towards Henryville. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will close the stone bridge tunnel on routes 191/447 in Pocono Township for a rebuild and repair, creating traffic havoc for over a year.

The roadway is a major thoroughfare connecting Stroud Township with Paradise and Barrett townships.

The project, still in the design phase, will begin sometime in June or July of 2018 and take about 14 months to complete, according to George Gumas of HNTB Corporation, the designer and manager of the project.

PennDOT will close the roadway at that time, and vehicles will be forced to take a seven-mile detour around the construction. It is similar to the detour that was used when another bridge north of the current one was rebuilt a few years ago.
