PennDOT has scheduled lane restrictions on I-81 in Cumberland County for the coming week.

A contractor will trim trees along a section of Interstate 81 in Cumberland County next week, according to PennDOT.

Work will be done from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting.

September is the start of the school year.

From Mile Marker 26 to Mile Marker 32, on northbound and southbound I-81.

In the event of inclement weather, the work will be completed at the same time on Nov.

23, according to a press release that went on to say:

This mobile operation will necessitate lane closures for up to 20 minutes in order to remove trees that may fall onto the interstate.

Motorists should be on the lookout for traffic that is stopped or moving slowly.

On I-81 in Southampton, Shippensburg, South Newton, and Penn townships, this project includes milling, resurfacing, base repairs, concrete patching, guiderail upgrades, pavement markings, and minor bridge work.

The project is expected to be finished in October 2022.

The prime contractor on this (dollar)26.48 million project is New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company, Inc.

Motorists can check the status of major highways by going to www.511PAcom.

511PA provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information, and access to over 1,000 traffic cameras, and it is free and available 24 hours a day.

511PA can also be accessed via a smartphone app for iPhone and Android devices, by dialing 5-1-1, or by checking regional Twitter alerts on the 511PA website.

The House votes to overturn PennDOT’s bridge tolling plan, but there’s a stumbling block in the way.

PennDOT will soon unveil a (dollar)63 million Market Street Bridge upgrade that could take a decade to complete.
