Pa. Turnpike Lane Restrictions in the vicinity of Allegheny Valley Interchange this Weekend

Eastbound delays expected
NEW STANTON, PA (10/23/2009)(readMedia)-- Eastbound motorists on the Pennsylvania Turnpike mainline (Interstate 76) will encounter a single-lane pattern between mileposts 46.5 49. The single-lane will be in effect from 9 p.m., Fri., Oct. 23 until 11 a.m., Sun., Oct. 25, weather permitting.

The single-lane restriction is needed for the Turnpike's contractor, Walsh Construction, to relocate temporary barrier and paint traffic lines associated with an eastbound traffic switch onto the newly completed eastbound segment of the Allegheny River Bridge.

Eastbound Turnpike travelers may encounter slow-moving traffic approaching the Allegheny Valley Interchange (#48) and one mile east of the exit, with possible delays during the late afternoon into early evening hours on Saturday.

Information on traffic conditions in this area can be obtained via the Turnpike Roadway Information Program by calling 866-976-TRIP (8747) or by visiting the Travel Conditions Map on the Turnpike's website,
