The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) plans to reconstruct and widen the Northeast Extension (I-476) from milepost (MP) A44 to MP A48. The project corridor traverses Milford Township in Bucks County and Lower Milford Township in Lehigh County.
The existing four-lane highway (72' wide) will be reconstructed to accommodate six 12-foot travel lanes with 12-foot left and right shoulders and a 2' median barrier (122' wide). The Project's Design Team continues to develop design plans in support of the environmental permitting process.
As part of this multi-phase project, the PTC advanced two overhead bridge replacements at Vera Cruz and Indian Creek Road. The Indian Creek Road Bridge is currently under construction. See below for more details.
The project also includes the replacement of the Cassel Road Bridge (Township Route 383) over the Turnpike before the Turnpike widening. The Bridge was completed in Fall of 2022.
