PennDOT lifts I-83 traffic restriction at Paxton Street

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – PennDOT has lifted a restriction on Interstate 83’s northbound traffic near the Harrisburg Mall.

Traffic was restricted about an hour while inspectors examined the bridge that carries Paxton Street over the interstate.

The bridge was struck late Friday afternoon by a piece of excavation equipment on a flatbed trailer.

PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny said the equipment was too high for clearance under the bridge.
