YORK COUNTY, Pa. — PennDOT announced the closure of a lane Interstate 83 on September 25 and reminded travelers in York County to be alert and use caution around the work zone.

One lane of I-83 southbound, just north of the Exit 4 off-ramp, will be closed Friday morning so a PennDOT contractor can repair an attenuator at the exit ramp, officials say.

The ramp will remain open during the operation.

The right travel lane will be closed around 9 a.m. on Friday and work is expected to be completed by the early afternoon.

PennDOT reminds drivers to be alert, obey work zone signs, and to use caution when driving through work zones not only for road crews' safety but for the safety of travelers as well.
