Harrisburg, PA – Motorists in Perry County are advised ramp closures are scheduled at the eastbound Route 22 on- and off-ramps at the Watts Exit. The ramps will be closed for concrete patching and asphalt paving.
Weather permitting, the ramps will be closed starting Wednesday, May 11, and are expected to reopen by Friday, May 20. Detours will be in place.
Motorists wishing to access Watts from eastbound Route 22 should continue to the Amity Hall Exit and then take westbound Route 22 to Watts.
Motorists wishing to access eastbound Route 22 from Watts should travel westbound on Route 22 to the Midway Exit, then access eastbound Route 22 from Midway.
Alternating lanes of eastbound Route 22 currently are closed in 2.5-mile increments starting just east of the ramp from Route 34/Newport to eastbound Routes 22/322 and progressing eastbound to the Dauphin County line.
Work includes milling, concrete patching, and paving. The contractor is scheduled to work both day and night.
Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the work zone.
