I-283 ramp to Route 283 to close for paving Sunday night

An Interstate 283 ramp to Route 283 is scheduled to close overnight Sunday for paving.

PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny said the ramp from southbound Interstate 283 to eastbound Route 283, near the Pennsylvania Turnpike, will be closed from around 8:30 p.m. until approximately 5:30 a.m. Monday, weather permitting.

If rain interferes, the work will be rescheduled for the following night, Penny said.

Penny said traffic will be detoured by way of the Exit 1B ramp to Highspire/Route 230, then west on Route 283 to northbound Eisenhower Boulevard, east on Fulling Mill Road, and finally south on Union Street to the ramp for eastbound Route 283.

Construction crews will also pave the ramp from southbound Eisenhower Boulevard to eastbound Route 322, most likely on Tuesday night.

The detour between 8:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. the next morning will direct traffic a short distance farther south on Eisenhower Boulevard to the traffic signal at Route 441, then left onto Route 441, then left onto northbound I-283 to the ramp for eastbound Route 322.

A third ramp to be paved is the one from Route 441 to northbound I-283, most likely on Tuesday night, Penny said.

The work is part of a $2.7 million project to repair and resurface Eisenhower Boulevard and several on-and-off ramps associated with Interstate 83, Interstate 283 and Route 322 in the Harrisburg area.

The overall project is scheduled to be completed by August 2013.
