State police briefly will restrict traffic speed on the Pennsylvania Turnpike tonight between the Allegheny Valley and Butler Valley interchanges.

The Turnpike Commission announced the traffic “paces” will occur twice from midnight to 3 a.m. Thursday as construction crews demolish part of the Rich Hill Road bridge that crosses the turnpike at milepost 46.3.

A state police pace car will limit traffic to speeds of 20 to 25 miles per hour in both directions to protect driver and worker safety during the demolition. The reduced speed pacing is an alternative to the full closure of the road.

Over the next six years, six overhead bridges will be replaced to accommodate the $200 million widening and reconstruction of the Turnpike between Allegheny Valley (Exit 48) in Harmar and Butler Valley (Exit 39) in Hampton.

More information about the reconstruction is available at www.mp40-48construction.com.

Turnpike traffic alerts are available by calling 866-976-TRIP or through the live travel conditions map online at www.paturnpike.com/webmap.
