Turnpike Now Open Eastbound Between New Stanton and Breezewood

The Pennsylvania Turnpike is now open eastbound between the New Stanton Interchange (Exit #75) and the Breezewood Interchange (Exit #161) which was closed as a result of a truck accident at milepost 138 eastbound. A single lane pattern will be in place near the vicinity of the accident.

The westbound closure between Breezewood and New Stanton interchanges and the detour route still remain in effect.

Westbound traffic is exiting the Turnpike at the Breezewood Interchange and being detoured to I-70 east (24 miles) to exit 1A (68/40 West, Cumberland, Maryland) (65.5 miles) to exit 14B (Uniontown) following U.S.40 west to U.S. 119 north (63 miles) to exit 1B (PA Turnpike). Re-enter the PA Turnpike at the New Stanton Interchange.
Expect higher traffic volumes on detour roads during the closure. Message boards will be placed to inform customers of the closure, and Highway Advisory Radio broadcasts at station 1640 AM also are being used to inform travelers.
