Interstate 283 (I-283), considered State Route 283 (SR 283) by PennDOT, is an auxiliary route of the Interstate Highway System located just east of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, United States. It travels from the Harrisburg East interchange of I-76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike) north to I-83/US 322 (Capital Beltway) at the Eisenhower Interchange, with a connection to PA 283 near the south end. PA 283 (officially designated as SR 300 because of I-283) continues southeast to Lancaster as a freeway.

I-283 begins at the Harrisburg East interchange of I-76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike) in Lower Swatara Township, Dauphin County. Past the interchange tollbooth, the road continues north as a four-lane freeway and immediately reaches a cloverleaf interchange with the PA 283 freeway that also has access to PA 230 via Eisenhower Boulevard. I-283 continues north-northwest past business parks before entering areas of farms and woods, crossing into Swatara Township. The road enters commercial areas as it comes to a diamond interchange with PA 441. After that exit, the road continues northwest before turning north and passing an industrial park. I-283 comes to an end at the Eisenhower Interchange with I-83/US 322 (Capital Beltway), at which point the freeway continues north as part of I-83/US 322.
