Work Zone Safety
Safety measures taken by the PA Turnpike include lowered speed limits in work zones. The maximum speed limit in an active work zone is 55 MPH (40 MPH at Tunnel crossover locations). The Pennsylvania State Police enforces speed limits in PA Turnpike work zones. If motorists are caught exceeding the speed limit in work zones, not only will fines be assessed, but points will also go against their driver’s license.
Motorists should be aware of all signage along the PA Turnpike, preparing them for work zones ahead of their travels. These signs include digital message boards along the roadway, as well as posted signs along the shoulder. These signs provide awareness
to drivers approaching work zones, allowing them time to slow down as they approach these areas and see workers along the roadway. One way to support our roadway team is to Go Orange to keep our workers safe in these work zones. Follow the posted speed limits, keep your eyes up and your phone down.
