Background:


PennDOT is undertaking an Interstate 83 (I-83) Master Plan to widen and improve the interstate in the Harrisburg area. The I-83 East Shore Section 3 Project limits stretch from the Susquehanna River to 29th Street. The proposed improvements include widening the I 83 corridor to three mainline lanes in each direction with additional lanes providing access to upgraded interchanges via a collector-distributor system. The I-83 Expansion Project will be divided into 3 contracts and construction will occur over the next 10 years.

Project Purpose:


Abandon, relocate, and replace storm sewers and inlets in conflict with the PennDOT I-83 Expansion Project. Storm sewer diversion pipe system to redirect stormwater flow from the CSO-048 combined sewer system to Paxton Creek.

Project Summary:


The total project will result in at least 50 conflicts with CRW utilities which must be relocated or adjusted and incorporated in the PennDOT project. Combined Sewer Overflow reduction with the diversion of stormwater from catchment SS-011, SS-012, and SS-013.

Project will be financed by a PENNVEST low-interest loan.
