Turnpike closed from Mid-County to Lansdale Sunday morning

If you need to get across Montgomery County on Saturday night/Sunday morning, don't take the Turnpike.

Crews will block off the Northeast Extension (I-476) Mid-County to Lansdale on Sunday at midnight.  Traffic will be closed in both directions until about 6 a.m., when one lane will open in each direction. 

The closure will allow crews to erect beams for the bridge that carries Sumneytown Pike (State Route 63) over the Turnpike in Towamencin.

Southbound traffic will have to exit the Turnpike at Lansdale, and northbound traffic will be re-directed to the Fort Washington exit off I-276.
