Downtown, Wilkes-Barre Boulevard and South Wilkes-Barre Boulevard are reporting isolated areas of traffic congestion at intersections. North River Street is reporting heavy congestion near West Maple Street.

In Kingston, isolated areas of heavy congestion are reported on Wyoming Avenue near Gershom Place and East Bennett Street.
