Default A question to anyone currently in PA or in the Harrisburg area

Travel information needed (and I can't seem to find the answer I need by searching the internet)

I'm heading down to Gettysburg this weekend and I'm planning on getting there without having to pack my kayak or water-wings.

I've seen that the water level is dropping on the Susquehanna but I can't find any more specific information about what roads are closed (or where those roads are closed).

Does anyone in PA know whether I81, 15 or 11 are affected by the evacuations/road closures?

I'm in State College, PA which is about 130 miles away from Gettysburg.
I drive on I-81 most days, including today and it's fine. Despite all the heavy rain we're actually still considered in a drought! This site might be helpful:

No worries mate. If you're still in the area for 4th July, State College has one of the largest fireworks displays in the country. Its pretty cool to watch.

I was originally going to be there from Friday pm through to Tuesday for the reenactment in Gettysburg, but they've rescheduled it to the following weekend due to the rain fall.

Apparently the field on which we were going to be fighting is a swamp at the minute!

My plan is now to head down tomorrow pm and stay through to late Sunday.

In addition, I'm also now working 3rd and 4th of July!!!
