Traffic shift rescheduled for I-83 at Exit 4 in Southern York County


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — PennDOT announced the postponement of a traffic shift on an Interstate 83 improvement project at Exit 4 in southern York County.

I-83 traffic is currently shifted toward the median while the outside portions of the structures and interstate are being reconstructed. The contractor originally had planned to begin implementation of a long-term traffic shift on southbound I-83 at Exit 4 this evening. The updated schedule follows:

Next week its contractor will restrict Interstate 83 to a single lane near Exit 4 to shift traffic to the outside lane and shoulder, paint lines, and set barrier in preparation for construction of the interior sections of the I-83 bridge over Route 851, the Deer Creek culvert, and the left lanes and shoulders of the interstate.

The contractor will shift southbound I-83 traffic overnight Monday, August 17, between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., and northbound I-83 traffic on Tuesday, August 18, between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Flaggers will assist in shifting traffic on Route 851 between I-83 and Mt. Airy Road on Wednesday night, August 19.

Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction along I-83 during construction except for short-term off-peak lane closures to adjust traffic patterns. PennDOT expects the project to be completed in the Summer of 2021.
