DUNMORE — A section of Interstate 81 northbound will be restricted to one lane on Tuesday.

The single-lane closure will be between Exit 170B (Wilkes Barre) and Exit 175 (Dupont/Pittston), and will occur between 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Crews will be setting beams on the bridge that crosses SR 315.

The work is part of a $27.7 million replacement of four bridges on I-81 in Jenkins Township, Luzerne County.

There will be major delays in the area. Motorists are urged to utilize alternate routes, such as I-476 (Turnpike/toll) between Bear Creek and Pittston.
