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.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is continuing construction on the third early action project which will replace the Market Street bridge in preparation for the I-83 North York Widening. The bridge will be replaced using Accelerated Bridge Construction techniques where the site is prepared with minimal disruption to traffic while the bridge is being fabricated offsite in segments. The site is now ready for Market Street to be closed. The bridge will be closed starting at 6:00am on Tuesday, September 27.
An approximately month and a half detour will be in place while crews demolish the existing bridge, finish the site preparation work, and bring the segments to the worksite for final assembly. The bridge is expected to remain closed until early November.
A detour will be in place using North Sherman Street, Route 30, and North Hills Road.
Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA. 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.
Additional information on the Market Street construction and other infrastructure construction projects in District 8 can be found at PennDOT Projects.
Clearwater Construction, Inc. of Mercer, PA, is the prime contractor on this $6,379,000 project. The bridge replacement is expected to be completed in December of 2022.
