Interstate 81 back open after overnight bridge work

Northbound lanes of I-81 closed at 8 p.m. Tuesday, according to PennDOT.

LUZERNE COUNTY, Pa. — Bridge work in part of Luzerne County shut down a busy highway overnight.

Traffic is moving again at the Dupont/Pittston exit after being closed for hours since 8 Tuesday night.

It was shut down because crews were removing beams from the Suscon Road bridge project.

But now the bridge is down, and Interstate 81 is back open in Luzerne County.
