Weather Warning Carlisle to Reading

Tornado Warning - NWS State College

The truck stops and businesses along the I-70 stretch of US 30 will never allow a direct connection the PA Tpke to I-70.  It would kill business at the truck stops and gas stations along that 1/2 mile stretch.  Even though a direct-connect would keep "turnpike to freeway" traffic moving, it actually comes in quite handy for a quick pit-stop at Breezewood.  I kinda would hate to see a direct connection, it would push me to keep driving instead of stopping to grab a drink, a bite to eat, and use the facilities for a quick 15-30 minute break.

The PA Turnpike Authority has completed reconstruction and six-laning on the western 10 miles

EDIT: fixed to show right authority

PennDOT has nothing to do with the Turnpike system.
