I-81 South in Luzerne County to close overnight Thursday

A section of Interstate 81 Southbound will be closed tonight to remove beams from the Suscon Road Bridge.

The area between exit 178 in Avoca and exit 175 in Dupont/Pittston will be closed from 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26 until 5 a.m. Friday, Jan. 27. PennDOT closed the northbound side earlier this week.

Drivers heading south should expect to leave the interstate for State Route 315 at the Avoca exit and rejoin I-81 at the Pittston on-ramp.
