"With the high winds forecast we encourage folks if they don't have to be out on the roads to stay off the roads. It's just too dangerous when you have wind gusts to 50, 60, 70 miles per hour." said Rick Mason of PennDOT
Down trees and ponding on the roadways are one concern....
"A lot of it is going to depend on how high the winds are, if we end up getting some of the higher gusts of 50, 60, 70 mph it may not be safe for our crews to be out there, so we're going to play it by ear and monitor the weather very closely." added RIck Mason.
But all eyes in Loyalsockville are on a structure still being restored after last year's hurricane.
The sign here clearly shows the Slabtown Bridge has not yet reopen since the devastation of Irene, now the big question is will it stand through Sandy or will a years worth of work be washed down the drain?"
"It depends on how much rain we get over how short a period of time. We anticipate that it's not going to impact that location." said RIck Mason
Mason says the bridge is just about finished... So hopefully it makes it through the storm and holds up for years to come.
