Lanes Restriction Lifted on NB I-83 Near Harrisburg; Traffic switched to the outside portion of highway. Two lanes open.

Harrisburg, PA – The lane restriction in place in the work zone on northbound Interstate 83 near Harrisburg has been lifted. 

Northbound I-83 traffic was restricted to a single lane Friday night from just north of Union Deposit Road (Exit 48) to the I-81/I-83 split so traffic could be shifted to the newly constructed outside portion of the highway. The shift was completed and traffic is open to two lanes. 

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways 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 1,000 traffic cameras.
