The Pa. Turnpike Commission advises motorists that the toll road will be closed between Breezewood (Exit #161) and Carlisle (Exit #226) interchanges from 11 p.m. on August 15th until 5 a.m. on August 16th.
This 65-mile stretch of toll road will be closed in both directions for six hours to allow the contractor to make placement of steel beams on the Meadowbrook Road Bridge at milepost 220 in Cumberland County. Work schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions and other circumstances.

The recommended detour for westbound motorists: exit at Carlisle (#266), take State Route 11 north to I-81 south (58 miles) to Maryland to I-70 west (I-81, Exit MD #4), (48 miles) to State Route 30 east and reenter at Breezewood Interchange (#161).

The recommended detour for eastbound motorists: exit at Breezewood (#161), take State Route 30 west (.3 miles) to I-70 east (I-70 exit MD #26), (48 miles) to I-81 north (58 miles) to State Route 11 south to reenter at Carlisle Interchange (#226).

Alternate route cards will be available to exiting travelers at both Carlisle and Breezewood interchanges during the closure. Expect higher traffic volumes on the detour roads during this time. Message boards will be in place to inform customers of the closure.
It is estimated the detour will add about an hour of travel time and about 41 additional miles to the trip. Such an extensive detour is required because shorter alternate routes cannot safely accommodate the diverted traffic volumes.
