Motorists on the east side of the closure wishing to travel west on Mount Rose Avenue should take southbound I-83 from Exit 18 (Mount Rose Avenue) to Exit 16 (Route 74/Queen Street), according to the release. Those drivers should then take northbound Route 74 (Queen Street) to northbound Route 3023 (Hollywood Drive) and continue on to Hill Street, which connects with Mount Rose Avenue on the west side of the closure.

The detour is reversed for drivers on the east side of the closure, PennDOT says.

The closure is part of a resurfacing project and JVI Group, Inc., of York Springs, is the prime contractor on this $1,138,781 project, PennDOT says. Work is expected to be completed by July 19, 2021.
