PennDOT will soon undertake a large project on a highway in Harrisburg.

The organization announced on Wednesday that it would begin a 4.8-mile resurfacing project on I-83 in Dauphin County on Sept. 26.

The project extends from Cameron Street in Harrisburg, through Swatara Township, to Union Deposit Road in Lower Paxton Township.

According to PennDOT, the project includes concrete patching, milling, paving and other work on the roadway, as well as on ramps and bridges within the project limits.

Work will take place nightly from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. There will be short-term lane closures.

PennDOT encourages motorists to be alert and drive with caution through the work zone.

Ramp closures are planned for next year. Updates, including detour information, will be issued by PennDOT in advance of the closures.

Work on the $4.8 million project is expected to be completed by Nov. 20, 2023.
