I-80 motorists are advised that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will continue pre-construction activities for the I-80 Nescopeck Creek Bridges Project in preparation of complete reconstruction of the two bridges carrying I-80 eastbound (EB) and westbound (WB) over Nescopeck Creek in Black Creek Township, Luzerne County.

On or around Monday, June 10, contractors will continue the first of four construction stages to be completed in 2027. Phase 1 of construction includes reconstructing the existing shoulders along eastbound Route 80, constructing the outside portion of the new eastbound Route 80 bridge over Nescopeck Creek, reconstructing a portion of Tank Road (Route 3016), and a portion of the existing retaining wall along eastbound Route 80 due to the widened eastbound structure. Short term lane closures on I-80 EB will occur between 6:00 PM and 2:00 AM, on Monday through Friday, for approximately 2 weeks.

The Phase 1 Tank Road (Route 3016) detour will be implemented for all through traffic.

After Tank Road (Route 3016) has been reconstructed to the designed final elevation, the detour will be lifted. This is anticipated for late fall 2024. However, the temporary traffic signal on Tank Road will be utilized through all subsequent construction phases.

Motorists can expect two lanes of traffic to be maintained in both north and south lanes at all times on Route 80, with the exception of occasional lane closures, which will occur during off-peak hours.
