Pennsylvania Turnpike Closure Between Butler Valley and Allegheny Valley on April 24
Two-hour, overnight closure necessary for installation of sign structure.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has rescheduled the two-hour, eastbound closure between the Butler Valley Interchange, Exit #39, and Allegheny Valley Interchange, Exit #48, to April 24 between midnight and 2 a.m. Weather conditions last weekend caused the work to be postponed. 


Drivers traveling eastbound will need to exit the Butler Valley Interchange and should use the following approved detour: 


EASTBOUND TRAFFIC Exiting at Butler Valley Interchange

Follow State Route 8 south (10 miles)

Left ramp to State Route 28 north (7.5 miles)

Exit 11 to State Route 910 east (0.2 miles)

Left onto Freeport Road to Allegheny Valley Interchange (0.7 miles)


Alternate-route cards will be available to exiting travelers at the Butler Valley Interchange during the closure. Expect higher traffic volumes on detour roads during this time.

The eastbound closure is necessary to allow the contractor to erect steel sign posts at milepost 45.76 eastbound as part of the total reconstruction of the Turnpike from milepost 40 to 48.  For more information on this project please visit
