New Interstate 81 Northbound Lanes Scheduled to Open

PennDOT has announced when the new northbound lanes will reopen.

According to PennDOT, the traffic switch for Northbound traffic on Interstate 81 will take place on Monday, December 14th.

The opening is scheduled to occur later in the day, Monday, after line painting is completed.

The line painting is weather dependent, so in the case that it rains Monday, the opening will be delayed until Tuesday.

Temporary single lanes will be in place during the daylight hours northbound while some finishing work is completed.

Southbound lanes will remain a single lane until December 22nd when the barriers are scheduled to be removed.
