5 miles of Pa. Turnpike to close this weekend

Posted: Updated:
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) -

A five-mile section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will be closed in both directions between the Harrisburg East and Harrisburg West interchanges early Sunday.

The Turnpike Commission said the six-hour closure, from midnight to 6 a.m., is needed so that construction crews can safely remove overhead beams on the Old York Road bridge in Fairview Township, York County.

The recommended detour for westbound drivers is Interstate 283 to Interstate 83 to the Turnpike, while eastbound drivers are urged to take I-83 to I-283 to get to the Turnpike.

The removal of the Old York Road bridge is one part of a nearly $75 million project to reconstruct and widen the toll highway to three lanes in each direction from milepost 242 to milepost 245.

The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2016.
