All four lanes of SR209 along with Harrity Road were closed for hours last night and early this morning when work crews attempted to deliver three large concrete beams to a work site in Franklin Township. The beams are being used to construct a new bridge which will carry Harrity Road over Pohopoco Creek. Southbound traffic along SR209 was unable to enter the turnpike. Harrity Road is widely used as a main corridor to the Pocono Mountains and Beltzville State Park.
