Pa. Turnpike to Close One Lane to Traffic at the Route 29 Interchange (Exit #320) on Oct. 1 Equipment maintenance requires a daytime single-lane closure on the exit-ramp to Rt. 29.
The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists using Interstate 76 between Downingtown (Exit #312) and Valley Forge (Exit #326) that a single-lane traffic pattern will be implemented on the exit-ramp at the Route 29 All-Electronic Interchange (Exit #320, E-ZPass only) from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Oct. 1.

Motorists exiting the east/west Turnpike at the E-ZPass Only interchange should be prepared for the possibility of slow moving or stopped traffic approaching the tolling equipment. Customers using the Atwater Drive entrance to I-76 will not be impacted.

The daytime restriction in the left hand E-ZPass lane will allow crews to perform preventative maintenance to the toll-collection equipment. Digital message boards will be activated on the mainline (I-76) to alert motorists of the lane restrictions.

Pennsylvania State Police and Turnpike maintenance personnel will assist the contractor until the restriction is lifted by 2 p.m. The work is weather sensitive and subject to change.

Travel advisories will be posted at and Highway Advisory Radio (1640 AM) will be activated to provide travel updates. Motorists can get Turnpike traffic alerts by calling 866-976-TRIP (8747) or visiting the live Travel Conditions Map online at
