Pa. Turnpike Advises Motorists of Possible Delays Between Butler Valley and Allegheny Valley

Overnight traffic paces planned Feb. 15- 19.


The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists traveling between the Butler Valley (Exit #39) and Allegheny Valley (Exit #48) interchanges, that they may experience delays due to intermittent, 20-minute traffic paces scheduled nightly between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. from Feb. 15 through 19. Paces will be conducted eastbound on Feb. 15 and 16 and westbound on Feb. 17, 18, and 19.

During the paces, Turnpike maintenance and state police vehicles will restrict Turnpike traffic to a speed of 20-25 miles an hour, allowing crews to complete preparation work for the removal of the Gibsonia Road (S.R. 0910) bridge at milepost 43.6. The paces will allow work to be completed without jeopardizing motorist or worker safety.

Motorists in the area should be prepared for slow-moving traffic and possible stoppages.  Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.

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