The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced recently that starting the night of Sunday, April 26, its contractor will resume work on a 10.5-mile section of Interstate 81 in Cumberland County. This project extends from the bridge over Kutz Road in Penn Township through Dickinson and South Middleton townships to the bridge over Route 641, West Trindle Road, at Exit 49 for High Street in Carlisle Borough.
On Sunday night, the contractor began removing barriers to open the ramp from Route 34 in Carlisle to I-81 northbound. The barrier was expected to be removed and the ramp open to traffic by Tuesday morning, weather permitting. After that work is completed, the contractor will begin milling, paving, parapet work, guide rail upgrades and cable median barrier installation.
