    Connecticut Department of Transportation warning about Harrisburg highway closure after truck fire.

    The state Department of Transportation is warning drivers who might be heading to the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area of roads closures after a fiery tanker truck crash yesterday prompted road closures.

    WGAL, the NBC affiliate in Central Pennsylvania, reports that parts of Interstate 81 and Route 22/322 in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania remain closed after the crash that the roads are severely damaged.

    The Connecticut DOT has posted signs saying “I-81 Closed Harrisburg Penn” on Interstate 84 Westbound.

    Interstate 84 Westbound continues into Pennsylvania and connects with I-81 just outside of Scranton.
