PA Turnpike to Close Overnight July 19 Between Quakertown and Lansdale Interchanges

July 17, 2020 1:17 PM | Brandon Moree (Administrator)

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission advises motorists that the Northeastern Extension (I-476) will be closed southbound on Sunday, July 19 from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m. between the Quakertown Interchange, Exit 44, Bucks County and the Lansdale Interchange, Exit 31, Montgomery County. 

Motorists traveling northbound on I-476 between the Lansdale and Quakertown interchanges will not be impacted during this closure.

The closure is necessary for the protection of motorists and workers so crews can safely install bridge beams at milepost A-35.87.  The bridge, which carries I-476 over Perkiomen Creek, is in Montgomery County.  

Pennsylvania State Police and Turnpike personnel will be positioned at the impacted areas to assist drivers. Changeable message signs will also provide information on closures and detours. Motorists are encouraged to plan travel accordingly. Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions.

Southbound Detour

Exit at the Quakertown Interchange, Exit 44, and turn left onto State Route 663 (John Fries Highway) north. Turn right onto State Route 309 south, then turn right onto US Route 202 south. Turn right onto State Route 63 (Sumneytown Pike).  Re-enter the PA Turnpike at the Lansdale Interchange, Exit 31.
