State Issues Warning to Pennsylvania-Bound Drivers

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.

For photos of the fire, see the WGAL Web site.
