WILKES-BARRE — Emergency bridge repair will restrict a section of Interstate 81 to single-lane travel into this afternoon.

Starting at 9 a.m., there will be a single lane closure on Interstate 81 southbound between Exit 168 (Highland Park Blvd/Wilkes Barre) and Exit 165 (Mountian Top/Ashley) due to an hole that has opened up on the deck of the bridge, according to PennDOT.

The single-lane closure will be in place until approximately 2 p.m. today.
