DUNMORE- The ramp from Main Ave, Dickson City to I-81 South will be closed starting on Friday, January 4, 2013 at 9 a.m.
The ramp was open on November 11 to January 4 where the contractor has agreed to conduct all work on the south end of the bridge, thereby allowing the ramp to be open for a period of two months. PennDOT believes this adjustment benefited the businesses and customers in this area. Motorist should be advised that a detour will be in place. The detour is less than 5 miles.
This closure is part of a $30 Million Interstate Renovation Project in which PennDOT is repairing or replacing 5 bridges, improving drainage, paving portions of the highway, removing a portion of a rock slope, installing guiderails and completing other safety improvements to Interstate 81.
