SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — There’s a travel advisory for commuters in Lackawanna County starting Monday morning.

Mulberry Street in Scranton will be closed from Clay Avenue to Taylor Avenue for road work. Detour signs will be in place.

Pennsylvania American Water crews will be installing a new 36-inch water main at the intersection of Mulberry and North Webster Avenue. The work is part of a $19 million project to install about 19,000 feet of water main in Scranton and Dunmore.

They say the project should increase the reliability of the water system. Mulberry Street is expected to reopen no later than Friday.
