Express E-ZPass Lane Closure Scheduled For April 12 at Warrendale Toll Plaza

The Pennsylvania Turnpike advises motorists that the eastbound and westbound Express E-ZPass lanes at the Warrendale Mainline Toll Plaza, Exit #30, in Allegheny County will be closed April 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. – weather permitting. Only E-ZPass customers use these lanes, which allow travel at highway speeds.

E-ZPass customers can still pay electronically using the conventional E-ZPass lanes on the right side of the toll 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 six-hour closure is needed for routine maintenance work to the electronic toll equipment. This work will proceed as weather permits. Message Boards will be in place to alert motorists of the closure.
