PA Turnpike Advises Motorists of Possible Delays Between Pittsburgh and Irwin Exits
Single-lane restrictions needed for bridge abutment removal.


The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists that single-lane restrictions will be in effect between the Pittsburgh, (Exit #57) and Irwin, (Exit #67) interchanges starting Feb. 27 through March 2.  

The single-lane restrictions will take place (weather permitting):

Feb. 27, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. eastbound

Feb. 28, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. westbound

March 1 from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. eastbound

March 2 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. both eastbound and westbound


The lane restrictions will allow crews to safely demolish bridge abutments from the former Trafford/Murrysville Road bridge located at milepost 59.6. The work needs to be completed during the day due to the excessive noise created from the removal process.

This early-action work and bridge replacement is a part of the future Total Reconstruction and Widening of the Turnpike between mileposts 57 and 67 scheduled to start in 2023. For more information on this project visit .
