Possible Delays Expected on PA Turnpike Dec. 1

Nighttime traffic paces planned on I-276 in Bucks County.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists traveling eastbound and westbound on Interstate 276 to be prepared for slow-moving and stopped traffic between the Bensalem Interchange, Exit 351, and the I-95 connector, Exit 40, Bucks County, due to intermittent, 15-minute traffic stoppages scheduled between 11 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1 and 2 a.m. Friday, Dec. 2. 

The stoppages are necessary for the protection of motorists and workers so crews can safely remove aerial utility line crossings at milepost 355.6.

During the stoppages, Turnpike maintenance and state police vehicles will restrict Turnpike traffic to a speed of 20-25 miles an hour.

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