I-81 ramp in Harrisburg to close April 8

The contractor for the George Wade Bridge project in Harrisburg has postponed the closing of the northbound Interstate 81 ramp to Front Street to Monday, April 8, PennDOT announced Thursday.

The ramp initially was set to close Monday, April 1.

PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny said the ramp to both southbound and northbound Front Street will close before the morning commuter rush and will remain closed for about three months.

A detour will direct motorists to continue northbound on I-81 to the interchange with Route 22/322, west on Route 22/322 to the interchange with Linglestown Road, and then west on Linglestown Road to Front Street.

The closure is part of a major rehabilitation project that began in October 2009 and is now scheduled to wrap up this summer.
