Bridge Deck Repairs Planned for Saturday on NB I-81 (George N. Wade Memorial) Bridge Between Cumberland and Dauphin Counties


Harrisburg, PA – Northbound Interstate 81 will be restricted to a single lane this Saturday on the George N. Wade Memorial Bridge spanning the Susquehanna River so a PennDOT bridge crew from Dauphin County can repair joints and deck spalls between the Enola/Marysville Exit in Cumberland County and the Front Street Exit in Dauphin County. 

The right and center lanes of northbound I-81will be closed between the exits from approximately 7 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, July 24. The left lane will remain open.

There may be delays. Motorists should seek alternate routes or plan extra time for their travels.

Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to use caution when driving through work zones for their safety, as well as for the safety of the road crews.
