Pa. Turnpike Announces Traffic Pace between Allegheny Valley and Butler Valley Exits
The Pennsylvania Turnpike alerts motorists traveling westbound between Butler Valley (Exit #39) and Allegheny Valley (Exit #48) interchanges of a 20-minute traffic pace scheduled to occur on Sept. 15 at 8 p.m.

During the 20-minute pace, a state police vehicle will restrict Turnpike traffic to a speed of 20-25 miles per hour allowing the contractor, Lane Construction, to begin bridge beam erection for the overhead bridge at milepost 42.65 where State Route 910 crosses over the Turnpike. The traffic pace is needed to protect the safety of motorists and workers.  

Motorists in the area should be prepared for slow-moving traffic and possible intermittent stoppages. The Turnpike conducts pacing maneuvers in certain construction situations as an alternative to full roadway closures and detours.  Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.

The bridge replacements are early-action projects needed to accommodate the total reconstruction of the Turnpike from milepost 40 to 48. Three bridges (Middle Road, Gibsonia Road, and Rich Hill Road) have been replaced and opened to traffic since work began in early 2013. Over the next four years, two additional bridges in the area will be replaced and the mainline will be reconstructed and widened between the Butler Valley Interchange and Allegheny Valley Interchange.
