Short Term 

On Monday, July 31, one lane will be closed on the Central Scranton Expressway while crews work on patching. The inbound lane will remain open from I-81 going into Scranton, but the outbound lane will be closed throughout the day. Work starts at 6AM and will go until 3PM. Crews will start work at 6AM because most of the traffic at that time will be using the inbound lane as opposed to the outbound, which will be closed. The decision to start earlier was made to avoid having the outbound lane closed during the second rush hour.
