The southbound lanes of Interstate 83 will be closed overnight Friday, Aug. 23, and Sunday, Aug. 25, for bridge work, PennDOT announced Thursday.

Contractors will be removing beams from the Mount Rose Avenue bridge that crosses over I-83 at Exit 18 in Springettsbury Township from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. both nights, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The work is part of the state's $58.3 million project to rebuild the Exit 18 interchange. Cherry Hill Construction Inc., of Jessup, Maryland, is the contractor.

Southbound traffic on I-83 will be directed to take Exit 18 to Mount Rose Avenue, then detoured back onto I-83 southbound, PennDOT said in a news release.
