PROGRESS, Pa. (WHTM) — PennDOT has announced that new beams will be set on the bridge that carries Interstate 83 southbound over Valley Road on Friday night.
Lane restrictions will be in place on I-83 southbound from both I-81 northbound and southbound leading into the project. A 45-day lane restriction is then slated to begin Sunday night on the I-83 northbound far right lane that leads from Derry Street to the off-ramp to Union Deposit Road. The restriction will begin half a mile south of Union Deposit Road in the area were the interstate spans Peiffer’s Lane and extend to the Union Deposit Road off-ramp.
Two lanes of traffic in each direction of I-83 will be maintained during daylight hours throughout the project. PennDOT warns there may be single-lane restrictions on I-83 in either direction during overnight hours, 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
The project is scheduled to wrap up in 2021.
