Ramp from Market Street (Route 462) to SB I-83 Bridge to be Closed in York County Due to Damaged Beam


Lane restriction will be in place on SB I-83 bridge over Market Street

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that it plans this evening to close the ramp from Market Street (Route 462) to the bridge carrying southbound Interstate 83 over Market Street in York County. A lane restriction will be in place on the bridge. A routine bridge inspection today revealed deterioration of a damaged steel beam under the ramp/merge lane. The damage was the result of a prior vehicle impact that has progressed since the last inspection.

The merge lane and shoulder will be closed on the southbound I-83 bridge, as will the ramp from Market Street to southbound I-83. The off-ramp from southbound I-83 to Market Street will remain open. Restrictions are expected to be in place by 7:00 PM.

A detour for the ramp from Market Street to southbound I-83 will be in place using Belmont Street to southbound I-83.

PennDOT is analyzing the damage and developing a repair plan.
