Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that its contractor will resume a resurfacing project the night of Sunday, May 3, on Interstate 83 between Exit 18 and Exit 21 in York County.
Lane restrictions will be in place in both directions on I-83 from 9 PM to 6 AM Sunday night through Friday morning, with the possibility that work may be scheduled for Friday nights, if necessary.
There will be occasional ramp closures with detours at the North George Street (Exit 22), Route 30 (Exit 21), and Market Street (Exit 19) interchanges.
This work is being conducted under a $5,413,378 construction contract that was awarded to Kinsley Construction, Inc. of the City of York, York County, and includes roadway base repair, bridge deck patching, milling the top layer of asphalt, resurfacing with a 2.5-inch Superpave warm-mix asphalt overlay, and new pavement markings on a 3.4-mile section of I-83 in Springettsbury, Spring Garden, and Manchester townships.
