A stretch of Interstate 83 will become a single lane this week to accommodate  construction work at Exit 4 in Shrewsbury Township.

Work was scheduled to begin 7 p.m. Tuesday in the southbound lanes, with a temporary barrier in place. Wednesday's construction will see a relocation of the barriers in the northbound lanes, according to a statement from Kinsley Construction.

In addition, work for reconstructing a bridge on  Route 851 will begin. The sanitary sewer has already been replaced and 75% of the gas line relocation also was  completed.

All Exit 4 ramps will have barriers to allow for construction.

According to the statement, once this is complete, lane closures on I-83 and Route 851 will decrease.

"With this in mind the project is going to have a lot of workers in all areas," the statement reads. "We try to be mindful of the general public and attempt to keep the inconveniences to a minimum."

Motorists should be prepared for delays and plan accordingly, officials said.
