PennDOT announced that both the on and off ramps of exit 31 (Hometown/Mahanoy City exit) on Interstate 81 are back open after being closed for over a month during reconstruction work. All four of the McAdoo/Hometown on and off ramps at exit 138 are estimated to be closed up to three more months. The road work is part of the I-81 reconstruction project that started last year with the resurfacing of I-81 between the Luzerne County line and the Hometown/Mahanoy City exit. PennDOT has published established bypass detours.
