PennDOT: One lane of I-83 northbound to shut down Monday night
One lane of a portion of Interstate 83 will be temporarily closed for roadwork and a traffic shift Monday night, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
The right lane northbound on I-83 at Exit 4 in Shrewsbury Township will be closed from 7 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday so traffic can be shifted on the ramp from I-83 to Route 851.
Construction work at the exit will include line eradication, line painting and moving a concrete barrier so traffic can be shifted from the right side of the exit ramp to the left side, PennDOT said in a news release.
Once the traffic shift is implemented, the right side of the exit ramp will undergo construction.
The work is part of a $29.9 million project awarded to Kinsley Construction Inc. to reconstruct Exit 4 as a diverging diamond interchange, according to PennDOT. The project is expected to be completed by next fall.
