Single Lane Closure on I-81 North, due to Oversize Truck that is Stuck in the Work Zone

Dunmore – The right lane of Interstate 81 North is closed between Exit 188 (Dunmore/Throop) and Exit 190 (Main Avenue) as the result of a 14’ wide truck attempting to go through a 10’ wide work zone. The oversize truck is currently stuck in the work zone, and emergency responders are working to get it removed. The anticipated reopening is 3 p.m. and major delays are expected in the area.

Motorists should consider alternate routes such as I-476 (Turnpike/toll) between Pittston and Clarks Summit.
