COLUMBIA, Pa. — Columbia Borough Police say the new section of Rt. 441 will be open Thursday, December 17th,  at 10:00 AM. They  urge drivers to be careful of workers in the area preparing for the opening.

Work is still being done on the connection to the Northwest River Trail. People are advised against trespassing in the Norfolk Southern yard.

The bypass has been finished since October, but the traffic light on Front Street by the train tracks was not timed correctly, so cars would be backed up over three railroad tracks.
