Nearly 3M expected on Pa. Turnpike over July 4th holiday

HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission expects about 2.8 million vehicles to be traveling the turnpike over the Independence Day holiday. That figure is up from the 2.7 million vehicles anticipated last year.

The heaviest traveled day is expected to be Thursday with nearly 700,000 vehicles predicted to be on the turnpike. With that volume of traffic expected on the roadway, the PTC is asking motorists to stay alert and be aware of distracted drivers over the holiday.
