Work on the Camp Horne Road off-ramp was supposed to happen this weekend, but PennDOT has changed its plans because of rain delays on previously scheduled work.

Repaving of the work in the Camp Horne Road off-ramp will take place during the day on Friday and the off-ramp will remain open, according to PennDOT.


There’s some good news about the HOV lanes. They will reopen at 11 a.m. on Sunday. That means next week the normal HOV traffic patterns will resume.

All of this work is part of the nearly $88 million dollar Parkway North improvement project.
