Pa. Turnpike Advises Motorists of Possible Delays Between
Bensalem and Delaware Valley Interchanges
Night time traffic paces planned for August 13-14.


The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists traveling eastbound on I-276 from the Bensalem Interchange, Exit 351, to the Delaware Valley Interchange, Exit 358, in Bristol Township, Bucks County, that they may experience delays due to intermittent, 20-minute traffic paces scheduled between 6 p.m. on Aug. 13 to 10 a.m. on Aug. 14.  The paces are necessary for crews to safely switch traffic lanes to prepare for upcoming roadwork. 

During the paces, Turnpike maintenance and Pa. State Police vehicles will restrict Turnpike traffic to a speed of 20-25 miles an hour.  Motorists in the area should be prepared for slow-moving traffic and possible stoppages.  Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.
