Possible Delays Expected on PA Turnpike Jan. 17

Nighttime traffic paces planned on I-276 in Bucks County

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists traveling in both directions on Interstate 276 and southbound on Interstate 95 to be prepared for slow-moving and stopped traffic between the Delaware Valley Interchange, Exit 42 on I-95, and the Neshaminy Falls Interchange, Exit 353 on I-276, in Bucks County from 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 17 to 4 a.m. on Jan. 18.  

During the stoppages, Turnpike maintenance and state police vehicles will restrict Turnpike traffic to a speed of 20-25 miles an hour.  The stoppages are necessary for the protection of motorists and workers so crews can safely install power lines that cross the Turnpike at milepost 355.6. 

Motorists are encouraged to plan travel accordingly. Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.
