SHAMOKIN — Southbound traffic on Route 61 may be detoured onto Commerce Street — but not until at least 2030.

Crews are in the field surveying Commerce Street and adjoining properties to determine what improvements need to be done to make it a viable detour route, according to Dave Thompson, community relations coordinator.
