HARRISBURG, Pa. — The public can now share their opinions in person to PennDOT on the proposal to toll the popular I-83 South Bridge that carries traffic to and from Harrisburg. It's part of a larger plan that would also toll 8 other bridges in the state.
PennDOT is holding an open house November 9 from 1-7 pm at the Harrisburg Mall on 3501 Paxton St on the first floor across from Wells Fargo Bank. A second open house will then take place November 10 from 1-7 pm at the Penn Harris Hotel on 1150 Camp Hill Bypass in Camp Hill.
PennDOT is also accepting public comments on the project online through November 24 at 11:59 pm.

PennDOT has offered an on-demand virtual public meeting on the I-83 South Bridge project that can be accessed here.
PennDOT claims the I-83 John Harris Memorial (South) Bridge is aging and no longer meets current design standards.
The proposed tolls for drivers could range from $1-2 for vehicles charged through EZPass or Toll by Plate.The cost for commercial vehicles is expected to exceed that.
