People driving on Interstate 83 and Route 30 in the York area during the next week might face lane restrictions, according to a release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.


The roadwork will start Wednesday morning in the southbound lanes of I-83 between Exit 18, which is for Mount Rose Avenue, and Exit 16, which is for Queen Street, according to PennDOT. The base-repair work will run from 9 a.m. until about 2 p.m. in the highway's left lane.

During those same hours on Thursday, crews will continue farther south in the left lane, working between Exit 14, which is for Leader Heights, and Exit 10, which is for Loganville, according to the PennDOT release.

Workers will jump to a different road on Friday: One westbound lane of Route 30 between routes 616 and 116 in West Manchester Township will be closed, PennDOT says. That work will take place between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., the release states.

After taking a break for the weekend, crews will return to I-83 on Monday, when they will work in the right northbound lane of the highway between Exit 4, which is for Shrewsbury, and Exit 8, which is for Glen Rock, PennDOT says. That work will take place between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

All of these days and times are subject to change if the weather doesn't cooperate, according to PennDOT.

PennDOT asks that people driving through these areas be alert, obey work-zone signs and slow down.
