Starting at around 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 9, traffic on northbound Interstate 83 in the vicinity of mile marker 42 in Lemoyne Borough, Cumberland County –
just prior to the John Harris Memorial Bridge over the Susquehanna River — will be restricted to a single lane so that a repair crew can remove a portion of an
overhead sign that was damaged this afternoon. The structural integrity of the sign structure is fine, but a portion of the overhead sign structure is now hanging less than 16 feet above the pavement and is at risk of striking an over-height vehicle or its load. The left and center lanes will be closed for this operation from 9 a.m. until roughly 12 noon. (There is a fourth northbound lane, but this is an auxiliary lane for the exit ramp to 2nd Street in Harrisburg on the east side of the river.)

This portion of northbound I-83 carries 62,499 vehicles on a daily basis. Trucks account for 10% of this traffic volume.
