Several closures are happening on Interstate 83 this week in Shrewsbury Township due to construction, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
At 9 p.m. Friday, the southbound I-83 ramps to Route 851 and the Route 851 ramps to southbound I-83 will be closed. During this time, motorists can use Glen Rock Exit 8 to Route 216 west to Susquehanna Trail to Route 851 and vice versa.
Then, once work on the southbound ramps is completed, the northbound I-83 ramps to Route 851 and the Route 851 ramps to northbound I-83 will close.
Additionally, at 9 p.m. Saturday, Route 851 will be closed under the I-83 bridge for paving. This work will be completed by 5 a.m. Monday, according to PennDOT.
This construction work is part of a $29.9 million Diverging Diamond Interchange construction contract headed by Kinsley Construction, PennDOT said in a news release.
