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.

What's new?

In the summer of 2019, the I-83 North York Widening Environmental Assessment (EA) was released to the public for review and comment.  Comments were received on the website and provided at the public hearing held in October 2019.  A total of nine comments were received and addressed in a document called the FONSI Package.

Based on the engineering and environmental analysis and public outreach undertaken throughout preliminary design, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) determined that the I-83 North York Widening Project will have no significant impact to the human environment with the mitigation measures outlined in the EA. This approval concludes preliminary engineering and allows the project to advance into final design and construction.
