Total Reconstruction and Widening of MP 40 to 48

Beginning in early 2013, the PTC invested $200 million for the total roadway reconstruction and widening of eight miles of the PA Turnpike and replace six bridges crossing over the highway. With more than 40,000 cars and trucks traveling this stretch per day, it is one of the busiest parts of the Turnpike in the region.

When complete, this project will tie directly into the newly constructed, three-lane Allegheny River Bridges – an approximately $194 million project completed in October 2010. Furthermore, when construction of the Milepost 40 to 48 Project is complete, nearly 30 miles of Turnpike will have been rebuilt between the Ohio line and New Stanton - a total investment in Southwestern Pennsylvania of more than $600 million. These projects are part of the PTC’s commitment to completely rebuild the entire Turnpike.

The Milepost 40 to 48 Project is scheduled to be completed in late 2019.
