Turnpike Closure to Cause Traffic Backups

Residents are reminded that starting tonight, September 27th at 7 pm the Pennsylvania Turnpike will close all westbound lanes at the Harrisburg West interchange in Fairview Township.  It is scheduled to reopen on Monday morning at 6 am.  Motorists should be prepared for significant backups and delays on Interstate 83 and increased traffic on township roads from driver's looking to avoid the congestion.
