I-84 – On Saturday, May 3 Interstate 84 East will be closed between Exit 46 (Milford) and Exit 53 (Matamoras) from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. to clean up from an accident that occurred on Friday.  This area is in a workzone, and is already a single lane, so to complete the work, traffic will be detoured at Exit 46 (SR 6 to SR 6/209).
*I-80 - Columbia County: Exit 241 to Exit 242  Two lanes of traffic in each direction will be maintained on I-80 for the majority of the project, with short-term lane restrictions and generally short-term ramp closures. The I-80 WB on-ramp at Mifflinville (Exit 242) will remain closed through the majority of the 2014 construction season. The project is scheduled for completion in 2015.

This single lane traffic pattern will be in effect for approximately seven months and access from I-81 north and south to PA 309 north (Exit 138) is closed. During the closure the posted detour will route traffic to Exit 141 (PA 424) to use PA 424/Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce Beltway to access PA 309 north. Also on Monday all PA 309 north traffic wishing to access I-81 at Exit 138 will be detoured to a temporary signalized intersection to use the PA 309 south ramp to I-81. The project began on Sept. 24, 2012 and is anticipated to be complete in March

*I-84 – Pike County – Last fall, PennDOT began a major rebuilding project on Interstate 84 between Exit 46 (Matamoras) and the New York line. Traffic has been moved to single lanes on the current eastbound lanes while the westbound lanes are completely removed and replaced. The primary need for this project is the ongoing failure of the existing pavement as a result of alkali silica reactivity (ASR).  ASR causes the concrete pavement to deteriorate and lose its structural integrity through a reaction between the aggregate and the type of cement that was used in the early 1970’s during construction.   Because of this ASR, the concrete forms a gel that may absorb water, expand and crack the concrete.  Once cracked, the concrete loses its strength and deteriorates. The project is expected to cost $66.4 Million and is slated be complete by April 2016.
I-84 – On Saturday, May 3 Interstate 84 East will be closed between Exit 46 (Milford) and Exit 53 (Matamoras) from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. to clean up from an accident that occurred on Friday.  This area is in a workzone, and is already a single lane, so to complete the work, traffic will be detoured at Exit 46 (SR 6 to SR 6/209).
*I- 84 between Exit 46 (Milford) and Exit 34 (Lords Valley/Dingman’s Ferry)  – Pike County – There is a single lane closure on I-84 West for two Bridge Deck Replacements. Anticipated completion - fall 2014.

*SR 6/11 – Clarks Summit to the Wyoming County line - PennDOT will be completing an approximately $50 million rehabilitation of SR 6/11. In preparation for that work, contractors have begun replacing the liner of the drain pipes at Glenburn Pond.  There is currently a single lane pattern in place in that area as crews complete the drainage work.  From July 2014 to October 2017, crews will rehabilitate nearly 8 miles of road, from Clarks Summit to the Wyoming County line.  As part of the project, 8 bridges will be replaced or rehabilitated, turning lanes will be added or improved, new signals will be installed or upgraded and the entire stretch of highway will be repaved.  There will be various traffic patterns set up throughout the duration of the project. Anticipated completion – October 2017.
 *SR 6/11 – Clarks Summit: The sewer authority is completing a project in the Chinchilla area,  The project will involve single lane closures in each direction with work 24 hours a day , weekdays only.  Anticipated completion – June 2014

Luzerne County
This weekend into Monday, May 5th, Wright Township, Hanover Twp. and Larksville Borough Police Departments will be conducting D.U.I. Checkpoints and Roving Patrols.
*SR 309 -  Blasting is scheduled for Monday, May 5.  Traffic will be stopped for 10-15 minutes when they blast.  As soon as the specific time is known, we will send out an alert to the public.  Traffic is now in single lane patterns in the area and will remain in single-lane patterns until late fall.  To ensure public safety, PennDOT is also imposing a ban on trucks over 10.5 tons that will be in effect at all times in the southbound lane and from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m. going north.  This work is a $5.2 million safety enhancement project that will blast and remove portions of the rock in the area.  By widening the rock cut, less water will flow onto the road, and more sunlight will be able to reach the road surface, thereby reducing the amount of ice on the road.  Throughout the duration of the project, the speed limit will be reduced to 35 m.p.h. Two portable cameras have been installed to allow motorists to view traffic conditions before heading out and are available at www.511pa.com 5/2 Update: Currently, the signs for the truck ban and the detour have not arrived, and PennDOT did not want to hold up the project any longer.  Until the signs come in (and it is over 300 signs for a 26 mile detour), we can’t enforce any ban.  Once we do, it will be 24/7 Southbound and 4 a.m. to 11 p.m. Northbound.
