CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – A 65-mile stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike has reopened after an accident involving a tractor-trailer.
The crashed forced eastbound lanes between Breezewood and Carlisle to close from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Workers spent about five hours to repair a guide rail and remove the tractor and a second vehicle involved in the crash near the Carlisle Interchange.
The closure added about an hour of travel time and about 41 additional miles to commuters.
Eastbound traffic entering the Fort Littleton and Willow Hill interchanges were unable to travel east the Blue Mountain Interchange; drivers entering the Blue Mountain could only travel west.
