Interstate 81 Northbound Returns to 2 Lanes near Pine Grove

The long term lane restrictions on Interstate 81 north were removed late this past Friday night. The long term lane restrictions on Interstate 81 south were removed on December 13.

Traffic in both directions had been reduced to a single lane for construction work related to the ongoing Interstate 81 Reconstruction Project. Work on this section of I-81 includes placing an unbonded concrete overlay, interchange improvements at Exits 100 (PA 443) and 104 (PA 125), guiderail updates, signage updates, new pavement markings, brush/tree cutting, and other miscellaneous construction.

Hi-Way Paving, Inc. of Hilliard, OH is the general contractor on the $43,894,275 project. Work began in March 2015 and is expected to be complete in May 2017. Motorists may experience sporadic daytime lane restrictions between now and May while crews finish the project.
