Turnpike plazas to begin closing at night for service plaza work

Top Stories

EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU) — A heads-up for drivers using the turnpike late at night.

The turnpike is going to start closing one service plaza each night for an hour between midnight and 4 a.m. They’ll be installing a new system that will help truckers find parking, which is in short supply nationwide, partly because there are so many trucks on the roads.

This will start Wednesday night and go for about nine days. The list of when each service plaza will be closed is below:

  • Thursday, June 3: Hickory Run Service Plaza (I-476 northbound and southbound at milepost 86.1)
  • Friday, June 4: Allentown Service Plaza (I-476 northbound and southbound at milepost 55.9)
  • Saturday, June 5: King of Prussia Service Plaza (I-276 westbound at milepost 328.4); Valley Forge Service Plaza (I-76 eastbound at milepost 324.6)
  • Sunday, June 6: Peter J. Camiel Service Plaza (I-76 westbound at milepost 304.8)
  • Monday, June 7: Bowmansville Service Plaza (I-76 eastbound at milepost 289.9)
  • Tuesday, June 8: Lawn Service Plaza (I-76 westbound at milepost 258.8)
  • Wednesday, June 9: Highspire Service Plaza (I-76 eastbound at milepost 249.7)
  • Thursday, June 10: Blue Mountain Service Plaza (I-76 westbound at milepost 202.6)
