Pa. Turnpike Traffic Advisory for Lebanon-Lancaster Interchange

Renaissance Faire traffic may cause delays over the weekend.
Pennsylvania Turnpike officials anticipate heavy traffic this weekend in Lancaster County when thousands of visitors converge on the Mount Hope Estate & Winery fairgrounds for the 34th season of the Renaissance Faire. Event organizers expect about 6,000 people to visit the Faire Aug. 9 and nearly 4,500 people Aug. 10. 

Motorists traveling on the Pa. Turnpike (I-76) should expect delays entering and exiting the Lebanon-Lancaster Interchange (Exit #266) every weekend through Oct. 26 when the Renaissance Faire ends. Turnpike maintenance and Pennsylvania State Police will be on hand to monitor traffic in the area each weekend.

The Faire is located 15 miles north of Lancaster and 14 miles east of Hershey on State Route 72 (Lebanon Road) which is located ½ mile south of the Turnpike exit in Rapho Township, Lancaster County. 

In the event of delays, detours or closures, the Turnpike will activate its Variable Message Signs and Highway Advisory Radio System (1640 AM) to inform motorists of conditions. For emergencies, dial *11 on your mobile phone.
