LUZERNE COUNTY — Drivers face delays on a section of interstate highway in Luzerne County because of bridge repairs.

According to PennDOT, Interstate 81 north will be down to one lane Monday afternoon between the Wilkes-Barre exit (170) and the Dupont/Pittston exit (175) because of a hole in a bridge.

Crews plan to close the lane by 3:30 p.m. and said the work should last about two hours.

PennDOT expects major delays on I-81 north and urges drivers to find alternate routes.
