Single Lane Closure on I-81 North Tomorrow to Set Beams

Dunmore – On Tuesday, June 24 there will be a single lane closure on Interstate 81 North between Exit 170B (Wilkes Barre) and Exit 175 (Dupont/Pittston). Between 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. crews will be setting beams on the bridge that crosses SR 315.

This work is part of a $27.7 million replacement of four bridges on I-81 in Jenkins Township, Luzerne County.

There will be major delays in the area tomorrow as crews set the beams. Motorists are urged to utilize alternate routes, such as I-476 (Turnpike/toll) between Bear Creek and Pittston.
