Deck Repair to restrict northbound traffic on I-81 in Harrisburg area

DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa.– PennDOT maintenance crews will be making a deck repair today (Monday, Jan. 29) on the bridge that carries northbound Interstate 81 over Front Street in Susquehanna Township, just north of Harrisburg in Dauphin County. The repair will be made in the center lane. Motorists are advised that northbound I-81 will be restricted to two lanes of traffic – one on each side of the center lane — starting at around 9 AM and continuing into mid-afternoon. Motorists should be alert to this operation, be patient and obey work zone singing, and slow down when approaching and traveling through the work zone. Traffic congestion will likely create significant traffic backups, and motorists should allow additional time in their travel plans in order to avoid delays.

Motorists can check conditions on nearly 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, 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 850 traffic cameras, 98 of which are in the Mid-state.
