SCRANTON -- Drivers in part of Scranton will face a detour later this week as crews prepare to open the new Harrison Avenue Bridge.

Workers plan to close the bridge starting Tuesday, December 5 at 6 p.m. through Friday morning December 8, according to Scranton Police.

A detour will be in place. Pedestrian traffic will be allowed to cross the bridge.

The new bridge is scheduled to open to traffic on Friday at 9 a.m., according to PennDOT.

    I hope that they informed all the ambulances that come down 307 from Moscow, Gouldsboro, etc. as well as all those who come off 81 expecting to use the bridge. They have to go all the way downtown to Jefferson then up Mulberry. That is a heck of a detour when minutes count.

    Hmm, why can’t the new bridge open, then the old bridge close. Then there wouldn’t have to be a detour.
