DUNMORE — Heads-up for drivers who take Interstate 81 in Lackawanna and Luzerne Counties.

PennDOT says drivers can expect traffic backups again starting Monday morning due to road work in the northbound lanes.

Parts of I-81 north between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport exit (178) and Drinker Street exit (186) in Dunmore are scheduled to be down to one lane again this week.

Crews plan to continue their work patching potholes, sealing cracks, and picking up litter.

The work on Interstate 81 is scheduled to begin Monday at 5 a.m.

    Why can’t they do this at night. Here’s a plan let’s shut down to one lane and do road work when the roads are busy and people have to go to work. Or we can do the road work at night when there’s less people on the road. You know let’s go with plan A cause we are stupid and have our heads up our A*#.
