ETTERS, Pa. (AP) — A five-mile section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will be closed in both directions for several hours this weekend.
The road between the Harrisburg East Interchange (Exit 247) and Harrisburg West Interchange (Exit 242) will close from 12:01 a.m. through 6 a.m. Sunday.
The closure will allow crews to remove overhead beams on the Old York Road Bridge in Fairview Township, York County.
The detour for motorists traveling west is Interstate 283 to Interstate 83 to the turnpike. Eastbound motorists should take I-83 to I-283 to the turnpike.
The work is part of a $75 million effort to reconstruct and widen the turnpike to three lanes in each direction from milepost 242 to milepost 245.
The expected completion date is the fall 2016.
