After decades of planning and nearly two years of construction, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission will open a new interchange in East Whiteland Township Tuesday.
Governor Corbett will be joined by other dignitaries and the media for the ribbon-cutting ceremony in the early afternoon. According to a press release from the PTC, the first vehicles should begin using the new ramps shortly thereafter:
The interchange is scheduled to open to traffic shortly after the ribbon-cutting event, by 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The new interchange, which connects to Route 29 in the northeastern tip of East Whiteland Township, is the first all-access interchange to open on the turnpike in decades.
