Construction Will Force Partial Closure Of Pennsylvania Turnpike Sunday

HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS) – Once again, a stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike will be shut down for several hours early Sunday morning for construction.

A seven mile stretch will be closed in both directions from 12:01 am to 5am Sunday between Bensalem (Exit #351) and Delaware Valley (Exit #358).

This time, the closure will be required to allow for the placement of concrete beams on the bridge that carries Bristol – Oxford Valley Road over the turnpike in Bristol Township, Bucks County. Sunday morning at 5 a.m. one lane will reopen to traffic in both directions.

Traffic will be fully restored eastbound by 8 a.m. and westbound by 10 a.m. Sunday.

    There is evidence that several corrupt DoJ, DoD and CIA employees had taken bribes from Al Quida in exchange for information and logistics support during the four years prior to 9/11.

    When one considers that the 9/11 terrorists could take jumbo jet flying lessons, move about the US unobstructed, live for several weeks less than 2 miles from NSA head quarters and while on State Department watch lists, even without the supporting evidence of bribery this makes sense.
