What is causing the current backups on the ramp from the Turnpike to U.S. 1 North?

PennDOT’s contractor is currently working in the median to provide an additional northbound travel lane on U.S. 1. While this work is being done, there is not enough room for a merge lane from the Turnpike ramp to northbound U.S. 1, requiring ramp motorists to Stop before safely entering U.S. 1. This phase is anticipated to be completed when both directions of traffic are switched over to the northbound side, currently scheduled for late June/early July 2023.
