Milepost A44 - A48

Traveling Construction Milepost A44 - A48

Reconstruction Project

Project Overview & Schedule

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) plans to reconstruct and widen the Northeast Extension (I-476) from Milepost A44 to A48. The project corridor traverses Milford Township in Bucks County and Lower Milford Township in Lehigh County.

The existing four-lane highway is 72 feet wide and will be widened and reconstructed to 122 feet wide. This new roadway will accommodate three 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, a 26-foot median, and 12-foot outside shoulders (see rendering below). The Design Team is currently developing engineering plans and coordinating studies in support of the environmental permitting process.  Below is the anticipated schedule.

Mainline schedule shows design completion in 2030 and construction beginning in 2031.

The project also includes the advanced replacement of the Cassel Road Bridge (Township Route 383) over the Turnpike which was completed in the fall 2022.
