Going into Week 7…

OTHC Members,
All Games are on time and should be played as expected….if anything, be ready to start early, as many of the prior College games can end early. Don’t miss the first announcement of theIron Man Tournament at the bottom of this message. Many OTHC members are expected, so start signing the guys now for your Roster.
TRAVEL ALERT (definitely in place today!!): The I-81 Bridge over Rt 315 is being demolished this weekend and this work will close Rt 315 between Oak Street(by Pollock Volvo) and I-84 Lumber. They won’t let you through the old Walmart Parking lot, so therefore you must detour down Oak Street toward Pittston. You can take a Left on Ford street then Left on Yatesville Rd. Here is a Link to details:
Also if coming from the South, on Rt 81 North you must stay in the Right Lanes.
PLEASE ALLOW EXTRA TIME FOR DETOURS AND DELAYS!

Schedule Alert for Tonight!!!

SCHEDULE ALERT: The Rink had Syracuse Travel Teams Cancel their Rented Ice today, so all the Captains affected approve of  moving the late game to this earlier Slot of 6:15pm. Cleanup changes from Squid to SteelHeads for this week. We figure the Loons can stay on target for Food with Early teams coming out to meet the Loon’s Jamie Cole and help her bring the Food in.

Road Work Affecting This Weekend’s Games!

Judging by the line of traffic from the Cross-Valley to the Pittston exit this morning, it seems that they are moving forward with this “split” plan.  I don’t know if the details below will be true for this weekend (315 closing?) so you might just want to leave some extra time to get to your game this weekend.

Travel Advisory

Allow some extra time to get to this weekend’s games.  For the latest information, check the 511 website: http://www.511pa.com

Luzerne County, Interstate 81 Construction Update
Dunmore – This weekend, the following work will take place on Interstate 81 North in Luzerne County:

I-81 Split:

Beginning on Thursday night at 7 p.m. crews will begin to set up a split pattern on I-81 North. The pattern will be in place by Friday morning. As motorists head north on I-81, they will need to make a lane decision approximately one mile before Exit 175 (Pittston). Motorists in the right lane will be able to exit at 175. Motorists in the left lane will be not. A contractor will be working in the area between the two lanes. The split pattern will be in place until June 2016. The entire project is scheduled to be complete by summer of 2017.

SR 315 Closure:

From Friday night at 8 p.m. to Monday morning at 6 a.m. SR 315 under I-81 will be closed in order to demolish and remove the old bridge on I-81 South. This closure will not impact traffic on Interstate 81. The closure will take place between Oak Street and 84 Lumber. A posted detour will be in place.

PennDOT recently completed a contract in the Dickson City area in which six bridges were replaced. The work at mile marker 173 is a second contract that is replacing 8 bridges and is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2016. The work at Exit 175 is a third contract that is replacing four bridges, and is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2017. All 18 bridges are being replaced with bridges that are wide enough to accommodate three lanes of traffic if needed. All this bridge work is separate from the work being done at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport.

Schedule Alert!

SCHEDULE ALERT: The Rink had University of Scranton Cancel their 4:30 game, so all the Captains affected approve of  moving the late game to this earlier Slot of 5:45pm. Cleanup changes from SteelHeads to Vipers for this week. We figure the Brewins can stay on target for Food with Early teams coming out to meet the Brewins as they bring the Food in.
