PennDOT hoping to reopen I-81 near Harrisburg Tuesday
PennDOT is hoping to reopen Interstate 81 near Harrisburg after a harrowing fire last week.
Officials are looking at reopening the highway Tuesday.
I-81 has been shut down at the Route 322-22 interchange since Thursday, when a diesel tanker rolled over and caught fire.
The blistering heat damaged an overpass that runs over I-81.
Long-term repairs are expected to take months.
Traffic restrictions are expected to stay in place while officials go to work.
