Travel Alert: Central Scranton Expressway To Close This Weekend

Family, friends, fans and even foes of The University of Scranton athletics teams coming to campus this weekend may need to alter their travel plans slightly due to road construction entering the city near campus.

The Central Scranton Expressway, a main route into campus, will be closed beginning Friday, Oct. 14, at approximately 8 p.m. and will reopen the morning of Monday, Oct. 17. The Expressway is Exit 185 off Interstate 81 and is the main route into campus from areas south and east of Scranton.

Those traveling to campus or Fitzpatrick Field this weekend, including for the men's and women's soccer doubleheader against Juniata, can use the following directions from Interstate 81.

From Interstate 81 South:

  • Take Exit 184 on right and turn right onto Moosic Street at the bottom of the ramp;
  • Follow Moosic Street for approximately one mile until you see Krispy Kreme coffee shop on your right. At that light, continue straight as road bears slightly to the right;
  • To enter campus, when road widens to three lanes, move to the far right and make a sharp right onto Madison Avenue. At first stop sign, turn right onto Linden Street and campus is directly in front of you;
  • To reach Fitzpatrick Field, when road widens to three lanes, stay in the far left lane. At the first light, make a left onto Jefferson Avenue. Street will curl to the right and become Lackawanna Avenue. At first light, make a left onto Cedar Avenue. Immediately after the underpass, the Fitzpatrick Field parking lot will be on the left.
