I-283 North ramp to I-83 South will be closed – Saturday, April 13, 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that at 7:00 AM Saturday, April 13, weather permitting, its Dauphin County maintenance crew will close the northbound Interstate 283 ramp to southbound Interstate 83 to conduct pavement patching and repairs to an overhead concrete-encased steel I-beam on the bridge that carries northbound I-83 to U.S. 322 eastbound just east of the City of Harrisburg in Swatara Township, Dauphin County.

The northbound I-283 ramp to I-83 South averages 15,300 vehicles traveled daily. To avoid delays, travelers should allow for additional time in their plans or seek an alternate route.

PennDOT advises motorists that the northbound I-283 ramp to I-83 South will be closed Saturday, April 13 from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM while repairs are made. Until then, motorists may follow eastbound U.S. 322 to the Penhar Drive Exit, turn right at the stop sign onto Penhar Drive, turn right at the stop sign onto Paxton Street, and turn left onto the westbound U.S. 322 on-ramp to I-83 South.
