Express E-ZPass Lane Closure Scheduled for Oct. 7 at Gateway Toll Plaza

The Pennsylvania Turnpike advises motorists that the eastbound Express E-ZPass lanes at the Gateway Mainline Toll Plaza (Exit #2) in Lawrence County will be closed Oct. 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Only E-ZPass customers use these lanes, which allow travel at highway speeds.

E-ZPass customers can still pay electronically via the conventional E-ZPass lanes on the right side of the plaza. Conventional lanes are designated as E-ZPass Only or Cash Only. Motorists should be aware that the conventional E-ZPass lanes have a speed limit of 5 mph.

The closure is needed to perform maintenance work on the electronic toll equipment. This work will proceed as weather permits. Message Boards will be in place to alert motorists of the closure.

Travelers can get Turnpike traffic alerts by calling 866-976-TRIP (8747) or visiting the live Travel Conditions Map online at www.paturnpike.com/webmap. The Pa. Turnpike’s smartphone app, TRIP Talk, streams audio advisories to iPhone and Droid users so they can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
