Drivers headed north on Interstate 81 can expect another week of long delays.
An area that had weeks of traffic back-ups last month is scheduled to be trouble again this week.
The traffic backed up early Monday morning and lasted until the afternoon near the Luzerne/ Lackawanna county border on I-81 northbound.
Drivers heading north on i-81 Monday morning likely found themselves in a big mess.
Around noon a seven mile delay stretched from the Pittston/Dupont exit (175) up to the Davis Street/Montage Mountain Road exit (182).
Many drivers tried to escape the highway headache by ducking onto route 11 through Avoca and Moosic where delays continued throughout most of the day.
Emergency responders also had to navigate around the extra volume of traffic.
