The drive into Harrisburg from the West Shore is about to get a bit longer again.
The contractor working on the George Wade Memorial Bridge over the Susquehanna River plans to close the ramp to both southbound and northbound Front Street early Monday, according to PennDOT.
The ramp 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. The project is scheduled to wrap up this summer.
