PennDOT is planning intermittent traffic stoppages tonight on Interstate 81 southbound at the Route 22/322 interchange near Harrisburg.
Construction crews will resume setting new beams for the Route 22 eastbound bridge over the interstate between midnight and 5 a.m. Tuesday, according to a PennDOT news release.
Southbound traffic on I-81 will be funneled into a single lane on the approach to the interchange at around midnight, and will be stopped for up to 30 minutes as each of three bridge beams is set.
Drivers will have the option to detour around the closure by way of traveling on westbound Route 22/322 to Route 39, then back on eastbound Route 22/322 to southbound I-81.
Three bridge beams were set on Saturday night, and the remaining three should be set tonight. If any beams remain, construction crews plan to complete the job Tuesday night, weather permitting.
The Route 22 eastbound bridge was severely damaged by a huge tanker truck fire May 9.
The new bridge, which cost $3.3 million, is scheduled to be open by mid-November.
