PA TURNPIKE MILEPOSTS 202-206 TOTAL RECONSTRUCTION AND WIDENING PROJECT

The $78 million investment by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission will reconstruct the existing roadway, shoulders and median and add a third travel lane in each direction in a nearly five mile stretch between Milepost 202 and Milepost 207 just east of the Blue Mountain Interchange in Central Pennsylvania’s Cumberland County.

The project began in September 2016, with the reconstruction scheduled to be complete and fully opened to three lanes by December 2018. In addition to a full depth reconstruction and widening, two mainline bridges, over Mountain Road and Bore Mill Run, are being replaced. The project also includes a relocation of SR 997, creating a new overhead bridge near Milepost 205.4, along with relocation of Zion Hill Road in Hopewell Township.

The drawings below show a cross-section of the roadway’s layout as it is now and how it will look at the completion of the project:
