Quehanna Boot Camp Detour
 
A contractor is currently working on replacing a small bridge in Clearfield County which will result in a short-term detour to demolish the eastbound lane of Route 879. The detour will be in place from 9:00 p.m. Friday, April 29, through 5:00 a.m. Monday, May 2.  Visitors normally traveling Route 879 East from Clearfield to the Boot Camp will be directed to take I-80 East to Exit 133 (Kylertown).  Turn left off of exit and proceed to traffic light.  At the light, turn left onto Rolling Stone Road and continue on this road for approximately 9 miles (keep left at fork in road) to stop sign.  At stop sign, turn right onto Route 879 East and continue to Boot Camp as normal.
