Safety Break

Work Zone Safety Outreach

The goal of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is to provide a safe and secure travel environment to our valued customers. To accomplish this, the Pennsylvania Turnpike will host "Safety Break" events at select service plazas throughout the year. Please see the list of dates and locations on this page.

Safety Break events will focus on work zone safety, and the PA Turnpike’s Operation Orange Squeeze initiative.

If you visit one of our events, you can:

  • Take the Safe Driving Pledge
  • Learn why it’s important to respect work zone safety
  • Learn about the consequences if you don’t
