Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that lane restrictions will be implemented starting this Friday night on northbound Interstate 83 between Exit 22 (North George Street/Route 181) and Locust Lane in Manchester Township, York County.
Beginning at 9 PM Friday, October 23, the left (passing) lane of northbound I-83 will be closed while the contractor mills and paves the shoulder along the median. This work is expected to be completed by 6 AM Monday, October 26.
Then, beginning Monday night, October 26, through Wednesday night, October 28, the right (travel) lane will be closed at this location so barrier can be placed along the right shoulder of the highway. This work will be performed nightly from 9 PM to 6 AM. Once the barrier is in place, traffic will be shifted slightly to the left toward the median.
This work is part of the $12,358,000 project to relocate the existing on-ramp from North George Street to northbound I-83 and includes the construction of a sound wall along the ramp.
The anticipated improvements include the removing the existing ramp from North George Street to northbound I-83 and relocating it across from Skyview Drive, installing a new traffic signal at North George Street and Skyview Drive, installing a traffic signal at the intersection of North George Street and the northbound I-83 off ramp, resurfacing North George Street from the I-3 overpass to just north of Skyview Drive, resurfacing I-83 from North George Street to the Locust Lane overpass, and other miscellaneous construction activities.
Kinsley Construction, of York, PA, is the prime contractor on this $12,358,000 project. Work is expected to be completed by October of 2022.
Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to use caution when driving through work zones for their safety, as well as for the safety of the road crews.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
