Lititz Pike motorists will soon be forced to learn some new tricks.
On Wednesday, May 29, PennDOT is implementing the first set of road closings and altered traffic patterns necessitated by construction of a new Route 501 bridge over the Amtrak and Norfolk Southern train tracks.
That means drivers who have been using Route 222/501 for years to enter and exit the city will encounter some major changes in their routine.
McGovern Avenue will be closed from the Lititz Pike to Queen Street. Consequently, southbound drivers unable to make the right turn onto McGovern Avenue will continue straight, to a new intersection at Liberty Street.
