Repairs are underway at Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Tuscarora Mountain Tunnels between the Fort Littleton interchange (Exit 180) and the Willow Hill interchange (Exit 189).
The construction of the eastbound tunnel began in the 1800s for railroad use, but it was never finished. The area was converted to roadway use as part of the original Pennsylvania turnpike construction started in 1940. The westbound tunnel, completed in 1968, increased the flow of traffic along the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
