BREEZEWOOD, PA —The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises travelers that construction work getting underway today will lead to lane closures on the Breezewood Connector between the mainline PA Turnpike (Interstate 70) and U.S. Route 30. 

The Breezewood exit ramp from U.S. 30 westbound to I-70 eastbound is scheduled to be restricted to one lane until October 31st. Currently, the left lane is closed and will be for several weeks to allow for reconstruction. In mid-October, the pattern will switch, and the right lane will close for reconstruction.
