|Pa. Turnpike to Close One Lane to Traffic at the Route 29 Interchange (Exit #320) on Feb. 5
Equipment maintenance requires a daytime single-lane closure
on the exit-ramp to Rt. 29.
| The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists using Interstate 76 between the Downingtown (Exit #312) and Valley Forge (Exit #326) interchanges that a single-lane traffic pattern will be implemented on the exit-ramp at the Route 29 All-Electronic Interchange (Exit #320, E-ZPass only) at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 5.
Motorists exiting the east/west Turnpike at the E-ZPass Only interchange should be prepared for the possibility of slow moving or stopped traffic approaching the tolling equipment. Customers using the Atwater Drive entrance to I-76 will not be impacted.
The daytime restriction in the right hand E-ZPass lane will allow crews to perform preventative maintenance to the toll-collection equipment. Additional work for guiderail repairs by Turnpike Maintenance crews will also be performed in the area of the deceleration ramp from I-76. Digital message boards will be activated on the mainline (I-76) to alert motorists of the lane restrictions.
Pennsylvania State Police and Turnpike maintenance personnel will assist the contractor until the restrictions are lifted by 2:30 p.m. The work is weather sensitive and subject to change.
