Lane restrictions this week on I-81

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will place daylight lane restrictions for line painting this week and next week on a 12.3-mile resurfacing project on Interstate 81 in Cumberland County.

Lane restrictions will be in effect for this mobile operation from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays this week through the middle of next week on I-81 from the Franklin County line in Shippensburg Township to the Kutz Road bridge in Penn Township.

This work is part of a pavement preservation project which includes milling, resurfacing, base repairs, concrete patching, guiderail upgrades, pavement markings, and minor bridge work on I-81 in Southampton, Shippensburg, South Newton and Penn townships.

Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the work area.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to more than 950 traffic cameras, 103 of which are in the midstate.
