DUNMORE, Pa. — PennDOT is taking the next step in a project to widen the busiest stretch of Interstate 81 in part of Luzerne and Lackawanna counties.
The state will unveil its preliminary plans to widen I-81 between the Avoca exit (178) to the Biden Expressway (185) at a meeting next month.
There has been talk about adding a third lane in this stretch for decades.
The meeting will be on February 15 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Dunmore Elementary, 300 W. Warren Street.
This is in the very early stages, and any possible construction would be years away.
