The Pennsylvania Turnpike will close to eastbound and westbound traffic from 11:59 p.m. March 23, to 5 a.m. March 24, between the Butler Valley (Exit 39) and Allegheny Valley (Exit 48) interchanges.

The turnpike is closing for five hours to accommodate the demolition and removal of the overhead Middle Road Bridge at milepost 40.2 in Hampton Township.

The bridge closed March 11 for demolition and replacement by the end of 2013.

During the turnpike closure, cards with detour directions will be available at the Butler Valley and Allegheny Valley interchanges for motorists forced to exit the interstate. The alternate routes direct drivers to use Routes 8, 28 and 910 and Freeport Road.

The Middle Road Bridge is among six overhead spans being replaced in preparation for the total reconstruction and widening of the turnpike between the Butler Valley and Allegheny Valley interchanges by 2018.
