Five reinforced concrete bridge beams will be added to a new span that will carry northbound I-83 traffic over Route 851, just east of Shrewsbury. The work is part of a $29.9 million contract awarded to Kinsley Construction that includes widening Route 851 to four lanes.

I-83 will be restricted for the duration of the work, which runs through 5 a.m. Tuesday. Traffic will also be stopped by flaggers on Route 851 under the bridge for approximately 15 minutes for each beam setting.

Crews are tentatively scheduled to bring in five additional beams for the I-83 southbound bridge over Route 851 on Thursday night, Feb. 20, weather permitting.
