PA 283 Eastbound Closure
Penn DOT will close PA 283 eastbound, between the I-283/PA Turnpike interchange and Route 441/Oberlin Road this weekend to repair a large sink hole. All eastbound lanes are scheduled to be closed from 9:00 PM Friday, March 7th until 6:00 AM Monday, March 10th. Depending on the extent of repairs, the roadway could be opened sooner, or later.
The detour while the highway is closed will be Eisenhower Boulevard to Fulling Mill Road to North Union Street, and then back onto PA 283 east. This will mean a higher than normal amount of traffic on those roads. Please drive carefully with this in mind.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT
RECYCLING BINS &
SHOULD NOT BE PLACED IN THE STREET!
This is particularly challenging for our plow drivers during snow/ice events.
We appreciate your cooperation.
