PA Turnpike to Close Overnight June 20 between I-95 and Bensalem Interchanges

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists that I-276 westbound will be closed on Sunday, June 20 from 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m. between the I-95 Interchange, Exit 40, and the Bensalem Interchange, Exit 351, in Bristol Township, Bucks County.

The closure is necessary for the protection of motorists and workers so crews can safely install new bridge beams. The bridge, which carries U.S. Route 1 over the Turnpike, is at milepost 351.61 in Bucks County.  Interstate 276 eastbound will remain open during this closure.

Westbound Detour

Follow Interstate 95 south to Exit 35 for State Route 63 West/Woodhaven Road to U.S. Route 1 north towards Morrisville onto North Roosevelt Blvd.  Reenter the PA Turnpike at the Bensalem Interchange.

Pennsylvania State Police and Turnpike personnel will be positioned at the impacted areas to assist drivers. Changeable message signs will also provide information on these closures. Motorists are encouraged to plan travel accordingly. Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.
