Construction on I-83 continuing until the afternoon

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Construction on Interstate 83 continued this morning, the right southbound lane was closed near Exit 48, Union Deposit Road, to the Eisenhower Interchange.

PennDOT said work should wrap up sometime this afternoon.

After reopening the closed southbound lanes, the construction crews will close the ramp from Eisenhower Boulevard to eastbound Route 322 in the Eisenhower Interchange. The ramp is planned to reopen by Saturday night.

These type of repairs are classified as bridge preservation and include items such as bridge joint repairs, deck repairs, and repairs to the bearings, all intended to help extend the service life of each bridge structure.

When the contractor finishes repairs to bridges in the Eisenhower Interchange and its vicinity, the final work will focus on the John Harris Memorial Bridge. The overall project is scheduled to be completed by mid-April, 2016.
