A $151 project intended to alleviate traffic on the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Northeast Extension is reportedly experiencing delays that could result in a trip to court. The project will add an additional lane in each direction along a six-mile stretch of road from Mid-County to Lansdale exits. According to Turnpike Commission spokesman Carl DeFebo, challenges arose after construction on the project began back in 2011 along a six-mile long construction zone. These include the building of temporary supports needed to reinforce the existing travel lanes, which are the highest traveled, four-land stretch of the turnpike in the Commonwealth.
