Pa. Turnpike Now Open Between Breezewood and Carlisle Interchanges

Tractor trailer accident has been cleared.


A 65-mile section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike between the Breezewood (Exit #161) and Carlisle (Exit #266) interchanges that was closed eastbound due to a tractor trailer accident at milepost 200.4 is now open.

Crews removed the debris and the jackknifed tractor trailer which were blocking all lanes of travel eastbound. The roadway is now clear and eastbound traffic is once again moving.

Turnpike motorists can get up-to-date travel conditions by calling 866-976-TRIP (8747) or by visiting the Interactive Travel Map at The Pa. Turnpike's smartphone app, "TRIP Talk," streams audio advisories to iPhone and Droid users. To download the free app, visit
