Possible Delays Expected on PA Turnpike May 26

Possible Delays Expected on PA Turnpike May 26

Daytime traffic paces planned on I-476 in Lackawanna County.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists traveling northbound on the Northeastern Extension (I-476) to be prepared for slow-moving and stopped traffic between the Keyser Avenue Interchange, Exit 122, and the Clarks Summit Interchange, Exit 131, Lackawanna County, due to intermittent, 15-minute traffic stoppages scheduled between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 26. 

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 overhead signs at mileposts A129.5 and A130.1.

Changeable message signs will also provide information. Motorists are encouraged to plan travel accordingly. Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.
