TRAFFIC ADVISORY
WESTBOUND ON AND OFF RAMPS AT DONEGAL INTERCHANGE REOPENED

Westbound traffic movements into and out of the Turnpike’s Donegal interchange (Milepost 90.7) in southeastern Westmoreland County were restored late Wednesday.

The restrictions had been in effect since about 10 am Monday, July 21 so that crews could finish razing a bridge that carried mainline Turnpike traffic over the westbound on and off ramps.

The re-opening of the ramps occurred at approximately 10:30 pm Wednesday, a half-day ahead of schedule.

Work at the Donegal interchange is part of a $66.8 million Total Reconstruction Project between Milepost 85 and MP 94.

More information about the project, including shots from real-time traffic cameras, is available online at www.paturnpike.com. On the Turnpike homepage, click on Construction/Expansion and then click on the Milepost 85 to 94 wording on the Turnpike map.
