Rolling Roadblock

Starting at approximately 9:30 AM on Friday, April 25, 2014 eastbound and westbound motorists traveling between Mileposts 159.3 and 165.0 will encounter a series of Rolling Roadblocks*.  Travel may be delayed in this area during this time.

*Note: A Rolling Roadblock slows traffic to reduced speeds of 5-10 MPH while work ahead is being performed in the roadway.  This allows motorists to continue in their direction of travel without having to stop completely or detour off of the Turnpike.  Delays during a Rolling Roadblock are approx. 20-30 minutes.
