WB Route 22 Ramp from Harrisburg to I-81 South to be closed for repairs through November

Harrisburg

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — PennDOT announced that starting next week, the westbound Route 22 ramp from Cameron Street in Harrisburg to Interstate 81 south in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, will be closed for bridge repairs.

The contractor will begin work on Monday, April 27, and is expected to close the ramp at
approximately 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 29. The closure is expected to be in effect until late
November.

A detour will be in place during the closure using I-81 north to Exit 72 (Linglestown/Paxtonia)
and I-81 south.

The contractor will replace bridge expansion dams, repair the concrete bridge deck and
substructure, waterproof the bridge deck, paint the steel components of the bridge
superstructure, and replace the interchange highway lighting system.

Normal highway and bridge construction projects in Pennsylvania remain paused as part of the
commonwealth’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This project is part of critical work
that continues statewide addressing safety needs and work needed to eliminate roadway
restrictions that could impede the ability for the movement of life-sustaining goods and services.

Travelers are reminded to be alert for roadway construction operations, to obey work zone
signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones for their safety as
well as for the safety of the road crews.
