History: Signed in 1992 from Carlisle Pike to I-83.  Construction began in 1995 on the section from Interstate 81 to end of the US 11 expressway in Camp Hill.  A fatality occurred during the construction when a beam being lifted into place for a bridge on the expressway broke the cables lifting it, and crushed a car on the highway below in 1996.  This section opened to traffic in 1996.

It takes a really big snow storm to close roads and that is exactly what hit on February 9, 2010.  Governor Rendell took proactive measures and closed PA 581 at 2:00 PM the following day.  In a press release he stated, "For your safety, do not drive.  You will risk your life and, potentially, the lives of others if you get stuck on highways or any road.  The National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings for several counties in Pennsylvania and visibility is at or near zero."  The Harrisburg Expressway reopened on February 11.
