Interstate 380 Pennsylvania
Forming part of the regional freeway network between New York City, Scranton and the I-81 corridor, Interstate 380 is a rural spur in northeastern Pennsylvania. The freeway branches northwest from I-80 by Mt. Pocono to Tobyhanna, Gouldsboro, Daleville and Moscow. Combining with I-84 across Moosic Mountain, I-380 connects with I-81 and U.S. 6 at Dunmore and the northeast side of Scranton.
Prior to 2001, Interstate 380 was signed as an east/west route to benefit travelers to or from New York City. With the route generally orientated north-south, signs were changed during the statewide Interstate exit renumbering program underway in 2001.
Most of Interstate 380 was resurfaced between 1996 and 2001, including the replacement of original concrete.
Work began on Interstate 380 in 1961 and was finished by 1976.1 The highway was initially designated Interstate 81S and then later I-81E. Approved by AASHTO on June 20, 1972, I-380 replaced Interstate 81E.
