Starting next Monday, July 31st, PennDOT has scheduled the closure and detour of the slip ramp at Sumneytown Pike and Old Forty Foot Road, serving eastbound traffic, for reconstruction and modifications to the ramp, as part of PennDOT’s PA63/309 Connector Project. The planned traffic detour will keep traffic moving beyond the slip ramp, up to the main PA Turnpike intersection with two left-turn lanes into the interchange. The detour will resemble the eastbound traffic flows approaching the interchange prior to the opening of the slip ramp. This detour will be in effect for approximately 2 months. 

Following the slip ramp construction, PennDOT will restripe the eastbound approach of Sumneytown Pike at the slip ramp intersection with a new configuration to include dual left-turn lanes and a shared through/right-turn lane. For more 309 Connector Project information, see PennDOT’s link.
