The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is advising motorists traveling I-476, between the Lehigh Tunnel and the Mahoning Valley Interchange (Exit #74), northbound on Monday (5/18) and Tuesday (5/19) and southbound on Wednesday (5/20), to be prepared for overnight right-lane closures between 6 pm. and 6 a.m.

The contractor on the Lehigh River and Pohopoco Creek Bridge Project will be performing roadway repairs and relocating traffic control signs between mileposts A73 – A75. The contractor’s schedule is dependent on the weather and subject to change.
