Five years ago, and after a string of crashes, officials pledged to do something about the Interstate 83 York split.
Each day, like clockwork, traffic builds along this vital link among Harrisburg, the West Shore, York and points south. It’s one of the most congested and dangerous stretches of highway in the midstate.
On Monday, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will start rolling out the first phase of a two-year, $22 million project to rebuild the I-83 York split in Cumberland County. Nighttime lane restrictions are expected to begin Aug. 12 and last for three weeks, as work crews prepare the site for construction.
PennDOT is hosting a meeting about the project on Aug. 28 at Cedar Cliff High School.
