I-83 widening project

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the U.S. Federal Highway Administration will hold a public hearing Tuesday, Oct. 1, to detail the environmental assessment for the upcoming Interstate 83 widening project.

The agencies will hold the public hearing at 6 p.m. at Central York Middle School along with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Doors open at 5 p.m., and those interested in speaking can register here.

The assessment of the project covering roughly 5 miles of the I-83 corridor from Exit 19 to Exit 22 — Market Street to North George Street — details the environmental impact of the project and methods to mitigate its impact on neighborhoods.

The project has garnered mixed reactions from locals who are predicted to be affected by eminent domain as a result of widening the interstate from four to six lanes.
