PennDOT: Maintenance on I81 next week

Road work

PennDOT maintenance crews will patch sections of pavement on Interstate 81 next week. The work takes place during daylight hours and could cause significant delays.

Weather permitting, PennDOT maintenance crews will implement lane closures in both directions of I-81 between Route 114 (Willow Mill Road) and Rich Valley Road (Route 1009) in Silver Spring Township.

A lane restriction will be implemented on southbound I-81 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 14. Pavement patching operations move to the northbound side of the highway during the same hours on Wednesday, Sept. 15.

Motorists should be alert, watch for stopped or slow-moving traffic, and drive with caution through the work zone.
