Pennsylvania Turnpike drivers should be prepared for intermittent slow speeds and possible stoppages tonight in the westbound lanes between the Pittsburgh (Exit 57) and Butler Valley (Exit 39) interchanges.

The Turnpike Commission said a state police “pace” vehicle periodically will limit traffic to speeds of 25 miles per hour or less from just before midnight to 5 a.m. Tuesday. The paces will begin at milepost 52 and end at milepost 46.

The 20-minute intervals of slower traffic will allow work crews to set steel beams on the new Rich Hill Road bridge that spans the turnpike near milepost 46.3 in Harmar.

The bridge is being replaced in two phases in order to maintain local traffic. The work is needed to accommodate the widening and reconstruction of the turnpike from milepost 40 to 48.
