The Route 29 Turnpike Interchange Is Open

Governor Tom Corbett cut the ribbon in a ceremony Tuesday afternoon.

After decades of planning and nearly two years of construction, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission opened a new interchange in East Whiteland Township on Tuesday.

Governor Corbett was joined by other dignitaries and the media for the ribbon-cutting ceremony in the afternoon. 

The new interchange, which connects to Route 29 in the northeastern tip of East Whiteland Township, is the first all-access interchange to open on the turnpike in decades.

No offense, but it would be nice to know where on 29 this is at. I know it's the "northeastern tip of East Whiteland Township"...but could you be a little more specific? Thanks

Here it is on Google Maps. The marker is right in the middle of the new exchange. http://goo.gl/maps/eY5qn And here's the PA Turnpike site about it, with a great picture showing entrance/exit ramps and how they connect to existing road. http://www.paturnpike.com/constructionprojects/r29ramp/project-overview.aspx Should be interesting to see how traffic changes over the next few weeks.

It is just north of the Great Valley Parkway where the former Boat House restaurant and current 29 restaurant is. There is a new traffic light there. Make sure you have EZ Pass. That is the only way to use the interchange.
