Closing Friday, May 7 at 9 pm through 6 am on Monday, May 10.

Motorists in Dauphin County are advised a weekend detour is scheduled for Locust Lane at Interstate 83 in Lower Paxton Township near the City of Harrisburg. Locust Lane will be closed so the existing I-83 bridge spanning the road can be demolished and a new bridge can be built.

Locust Lane will be closed at the interstate at approximately 9 PM Friday, May 7, and will reopen by 6 AM Monday, May 10. A signed detour will be in place using Prince Street and Route 22.

Once this work is completed, Locust Lane will be open to two-way traffic.

This work is part of the $104,747,344 interstate reconstruction contract that was awarded to J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Chester County, and includes widening and rebuilding a 2.77-mile section of I-83 east of the City of Harrisburg from just south of Exit 48 for Union Deposit Road, through Exit 50 for U.S. 22 (Colonial Park/Progress), to Exit 51 for Interstate 81.

The project is scheduled to be in final configuration late 2021. Nighttime temporary lane closures are scheduled for Spring of 2022 to complete final paving and pavement marking operations 

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
