PennDOT delays closing Front St. on-ramp to I-81 south

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

Due to the current construction at the I-81 interchange with 22/322, PennDOT says it has decided to delay closing the on-ramp from North Front Street on to 81 south.

The closure was slated to begin Monday night, but PennDOT spokesperson Greg Penny says they've pushed it back to the night of May 20.

Motorists are advised that starting that night, the bridge that connects northbound Front Street to southbound I-81 will be closed for up to three months. A signed detour will direct traffic onto northbound I-81 to the Exit 67 interchange, and then westbound on Route 22/322 to Linglestown Road, and then west on Linglestown Road to Front Street, and finally south on Front Street to the on-ramp for southbound I-81.

After work is completed on the first bridge, the next bridge over northbound Front Street to be repaired - most likely starting in August - will be on the ramp that connects southbound I-81 to southbound Front Street. When work on this bridge begins, this ramp will also be closed for up to three months, Penny said.

The $1.3 million contract is considered a bridge preservation project in which the replacement of the expansion dams, substructure repairs, superstructure painting, and latex overlay of the bridge decks are intended to help extend the service life of each bridge before it is necessary to replace the structures.
