WELCOME TO THE
The Interstate 83 Corridor from Exit 19 to Exit 22 is defined by densely developed corridors and heavy traffic demand. PennDOT has maintained this section of I-83 since its construction in 1958 with pavement patching, overlays, and bridge rehabilitation to extend its service life. Improving traffic flow and updating the design to handle today's and tomorrow's traffic flows safely is necessary.
The primary purpose of this project is to reconstruct this section of I-83 to achieve a more functional and modern roadway. The secondary purpose of this project is to improve future traffic flow, queuing, and safety performance on I-83 and the interchanges in the 2042 design year.
