A little more shortly than I would like. Just checked Facebook, and Jen posted this news story from WNEP:
Interstate 81 Traffic Alert
8:54 AM EDT, June 15, 2009
Drivers in part of Luzerne County face delays on Monday.
According to PennDOT, Interstate 81 northbound will be down to one near the Dupont/Pittston exit (174).
Crews will be making bridge repairs after an eight-foot hole opened up.
The work is scheduled to wrap up at 3 p.m.
This is directly along my commute, at the point I hit at 5:15 - 5:20. I have a friend who is on the road there now, coming the opposite way, and he called me to tell me the traffic is backed up on 81 for miles. He then called back to tell me that the latest reports on the radio say that construction will be going on until 4:30 - but I doubt that traffic will clear up anytime soon after that.
I'm going to leave early and take an alternate route. I hope 315 isn't too backed up...
