The drive into work and school this morning should be an easy one as all major travel roads are congestion free, for the most part.

Interstate 81 and Interstate 476 are congestion free and Highway 309 from the Back Mountain area is free flowing for the most part with the exception of a small patch of heavy congestion around Trucksville.

There is heavy congestion along Highway 315 near the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham and towards Pittston coming from Laflin as well as closer towards the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre International Airport.

Spots of heavy congestion is being reported in Wilkes-Barre on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard, South Main Street, North River Street, Coal Street and West Market Street.

The West Side is seeing spots of heavy congestion along Wyoming Avenue between Wyoming and Kingston as well as Market Street in Kingston.
