After public outcry and pressure from local elected officials, the state Department of Transportation on Wednesday morning reopened a portion of Bunola River Road in Forward Twp. that was closed to traffic in January.

A new permanent traffic signal has been installed that includes an uninterrupted power source and a radar-detection system to identify when a car is waiting to enter the one-lane section of road, said Steve Cowan, district spokesman for PennDOT.

Motorists should not have to wait more than 60 seconds until the light detects them, he said.

PennDOT also is installing new signs, stop bars and barriers to better define the section near Lock & Dam No. 3 that is restricted to one alternating lane of traffic, Cowan said.
