The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission cautions motorists that a 13-mile stretch of the Northeastern Extension (I-476) will be closed in both directions for six hours Sunday between Lansdale (Exit 31) and Quakertown (Exit 44) for bridge work.

At 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, southbound traffic will be diverted off at the Quakertown Interchange and northbound at the Lansdale Interchange.

Motorists wishing to travel north from the Mid-County Interchange or the east/west Turnpike mainline will be directed to exit I-476 at Lansdale.

The stretch will reopen by 6 a.m.

Right lanes will be closed in both directions from milepost A35–A39 at 8 p.m. tonight. The speed limit will be 40 mph until single-lane patterns are lifted Sunday morning.

State police and turnpike personnel will be at the Lansdale and Quakertown interchanges to assist motorists. For more information, visit

In the event of inclement weather, the closure will be rescheduled for May 17-18.
