Westbound Route 22 Ramp from Cameron Street to I-81 South (Carlisle) in Dauphin County is Open

Ramp closed in late April for repairs

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that the westbound Route 22 ramp from Cameron Street in the City of Harrisburg to Interstate 81 south (Carlisle) in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, is now open.

The ramp was closed in late April for bridge repairs. The project included replacing bridge expansion dams, repairing the concrete bridge deck and substructure, waterproofing the bridge deck, painting the steel components of the bridge superstructure, and replacing the interchange highway lighting system.

The 16-span flyover bridge (known as Ramp D) from Cameron Street in Harrisburg to southbound I-81 was built in 1977 and averages about 3,500 vehicles per day.

A detour in place during the closure has been lifted.

Work on the ramp is part of a $10,370,134 contract to repair and preserve three ramp bridges within the I-81 Exit 67 interchange with Route 22. The two bridges that carry portions of the southbound I-81 off-ramp to eastbound Route 22 and Cameron Street were completed in 2019.

Deblin Inc. of Mechanicsburg Borough, Cumberland County, is the prime contractor on this project.
