Interstate 81 from Skycam 16

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Work on a section of highway in Lackawanna County will continue into the weekend, according to PennDOT.

Crews have been repairing part of Interstate 81 north between the Davis Street/Montage Mountain Road exit (182) and the River Street exit (184) that was damaged by runoff in heavy rain on Monday.

PennDOT now says I-81 requires more work than originally planned. Crews will be working Saturday, August 18 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and additional work may be needed.
