PA Turnpike to Close Overnight Nov. 1 Between Quakertown and Lansdale Interchanges

PA Turnpike to Close Overnight Nov. 1 Between Quakertown and Lansdale Interchanges

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists that the Northeastern Extension (I-476) will be closed southbound on Sunday. Nov. 1 from 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m. between the Quakertown Interchange, Exit 44, Bucks County and the Lansdale Interchange, Exit 31, Montgomery County. 

The closure is necessary for the protection of motorists and workers so crews can safely install an overhead digital message sign at milepost A33.08, southbound.

Motorists traveling northbound on I-476 between the Lansdale and Quakertown Interchanges will not be impacted during this closure.

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