Intermittent Daytime Traffic Stoppages Scheduled on Turnpike 43 in Allegheny County Sept. 16 and 17

Stoppages needed for installation of Signage Structures
at the M52 Mainline Toll Plaza

NEW STANTON, PA (09/14/2009)(readMedia)- The Pennsylvania Turnpike advises Turnpike 43 motorists that there will be random, intermittent traffic stoppages on Wed. Sept. 16 and Thurs., Sept. 17 near the Jefferson Hills Mainline Toll Plaza in Allegheny County. The stoppages will take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and will last a minimum of 15 minutes not exceeding 30 minutes.

Traffic will be stopped to allow for the erection of three monopipe sign structures for signage alerting customers of the availability of the new highway-speed, "Express E-ZPass" lanes at the Jefferson Hills Mainline toll facility.

During the project, there will also be five existing sign structures removed over the travel lanes approaching the mainline plaza in both the north and southbound lanes.
