I-83 Capital Beltway Project
This interstate reconstruction contract is the largest in District 8's history. It includes widening and rebuilding a 2.77-mile section of I-83 east of the City of Harrisburg from just south of Exit 48 for Union Deposit Road, through Exit 50 for U.S. 22 (Colonial Park/Progress), to Exit 51 for Interstate 81. Construction began in late 2018 and is expected to be completed in late 2021.
This work is part of a multi-year, multi-phase initiative, known as the I-83 Capital Beltway Project, or I-83 East Shore Project. Plans are to widen and improve safety on the Interstate 83 corridor in the Harrisburg area between the Susquehanna River and Exit 48 for Union Deposit Road in Lower Paxton Township. The plans also include a $400-million redesign of the Eisenhower Interchange between I-83, Interstate 283 and U.S. Route 322 in Swatara Township.
