Drivers on Interstate 83 are expected to face slow or stopped traffic Thursday, as a contractor inspects roadwork between the Queen Street and Mount Rose exits (Exits 16 and 18).

Chester County-based J.D. Eckman, Inc., will conduct the inspections on both northbound and southbound lanes Thursday, Dec. 5, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The company was awarded a $13.6 million contract last year to mill and resurface the area of the interstate through which 52,700 vehicles travel on a daily basis. New bridge joints and guardrails also were installed.

The project is slated to be completed by the end of the year.
