Many people across the midstate are confused by what is closed or open on Interstate 81. abc27 sent a crew out to drive the highway and find out.
Our crew started their trip Friday at Route 114 in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County and headed north towards Harrisburg. All northbound traffic was being detoured at Route 581.
Then they headed to Wertzville Road. They found motorists could head north or south on I-81. They headed north towards Harrisburg. They traveled all the way across the Wade Bridge, and found the Front Street exits were still closed. As they continued north all traffic was detoured at Cameron Street, near the accident site.
Traffic heading out of Harrisburg on Cameron Street could head north or south on I-81. Southbound traffic could continue over the Wade Bridge.
Traffic on Progress Avenue could head north or south on I-81. Motorists heading south are only on I-81 for a short time before being detoured at 22/322 west.
All traffic north of Harrisburg heading south on I-81 is being detoured onto I-83 South.
