PennDOT closes ramp from I-81 north to Front Street

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Getting to Harrisburg from the West Shore is once again more complicated.

The contractor working on the George Wade Memorial Bridge over the Susquehanna River has closed the ramp to both southbound and northbound Front Street from I-81 north, according to PennDOT.

The ramp will remain closed for about three months.

A detour directs drivers to 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.
