You would think that PennDot would extend the courtesy of notifying Septa to detour the 98 bus route. Sad.

You said the road would be close from 9am to 3pm not true the road is still close and it is 6.20pm, so please tell the people would live on Rahway ave the truth about the time we have school age kids and we would like to know where the bus stop will be.

Gwen, that was the information that PennDOT and East Norriton released yesterday. I can call PennDOT tomorrow to find out why the road is still closed and I'll check with the school district to find out if any bus stops have been moved.
