A five-mile section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will close for a few hours early Sunday morning as crews remove a bridge in Fairview Township.
The turnpike, between the Harrisburg East Exit and the Harrisburg West Exit, will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m., according to a news release from the turnpike commission.
The closure is needed so crews can remove the old Marsh Run Road bridge that crossed the turnpike.
Alternate-route cards will be available to motorists existing the turnpike.
Westbound motorists should take Interstate 283 north to I-83 south and reenter the turnpike at the Harrisburg West Interchange. Eastbound motorists should take I-83 north to I-283 south and reenter at the Harrisburg East Interchange, the release says.
The work is part of the $75 million reconstruction project to widen the turnpike to three lanes between milepost 242 and 245. The overall project is expected to be finished in late autumn 2016, the release says.
