I-81 ramp in Dauphin Co. to close Monday

Posted: Updated:

Getting to Harrisburg from the West Shore will get more complicated...again.

Starting tomorrow, the contractor working on the George Wade Memorial Bridge over the Susquehanna River will close the ramp to both southbound and northbound Front Street, says PennDOT.

The ramp will close before Monday morning rush hour and will remain closed for about three months.

A detour will have drivers continue northbound on I-81 to the interchange with Route 22/322. Commuters will then head west on Route 22/322 to the interchange with Linglestown Road, and then west on Linglestown Road to Front Street.

The closure is part of a major rehabilitation project that began in October 2009. The project is scheduled to wrap up summer of 2013.
