A Pennsylvania welcome center lies a mile and a half ahead. Meanwhile, the highway's median has become a concrete barrier. Photo taken 06-28-2016.

I-83's first exit in Pennsylvania is exit 4, previously exit 1 sequentially, and serves Pennsylvania Route 851 and the borough of Shrewsbury. Photo taken 06-28-2016.

Since this is the closest exit to the state line, it contains an array of driver services, with food options being presented here. Photo taken 06-28-2016.

Exit 4 splits off ahead. PA 851 heads east toward Stewartstown and ultimately to Pennsylvania Route 74 in Peach Bottom Township. It also heads west toward New Freedom and, via routes 516 and 216, Hanover. Photo taken 06-28-2016.

While Shrewsbury is officially in the York-Hanover metropolitan area, it can be considered a bedroom community of Baltimore owing to its location just off I-83, less than 40 miles north of the city, and somewhat suburban nature. Exit 4 was originally a simple diamond interchange; due to increasing traffic, it was converted into a diverging diamond, a project completed in August 2021. Photo taken 07-11-2016.

Traffic coming in from PA 851 now merges onto northbound I-83. Photo taken 07-11-2016.
