Motorists are advised that southbound Interstate 83 will be restricted to a single lane on Wednesday morning, Jan. 14, starting at around 9 a.m. just south of Route 30 (Exit 21) in the York City area of York County. The southbound single-lane restriction is necessary so that repair crews can safely replace approximately 100 feet of guiderail that was damaged in a crash last Tuesday, Jan. 6. PennDOT set concrete barrier along the road after the crash last week. The operation on Wednesday will start with the removal of this concrete barrier, followed by the installation of new guiderail. The operation should take a few hours and be completed by early afternoon.

This portion of southbound I-83 just south of Route 30 is heavily traveled by a little more than 32,000 vehicles daily. Significant traffic backups are anticipated when the southbound direction of I-83 is restricted to a single lane. Motorists are advised to be aware of this repair operation and traffic restriction, to obey all traffic signs, and slow down when approaching and driving through the work zone – for their safety as well as for the safety of the work crews.
