Crews need to pave the northbound lanes of I-83 just south of the John Harris Memorial Bridge (the South Bridge) over the Susquehanna River. It will be the last substantial construction in a monthslong, $4.1 million project performed by Camp Hill-based Hempt Bros., a PennDOT spokesman said earlier this week. The project is designed to repair and resurface the entire Cumberland County section of I-83, which stretches from the Susquehanna River to the Yellow Breeches Creek.

Travelers on the evening of Oct. 4 and morning of Oct. 5 should expect delays or take an alternate route, PennDOT said.
