Receiving nationwide acclaim as an engineering marvel, the Pennsylvania Turnpike was touted as America’s first superhighway when it opened on October 1, 1940, and was the national standard for superhighway design and engineering. Today, the PA Turnpike stretches more than 550 miles, triple its original length. It continues its legacy of innovation in the ground-transportation industry and embraces modern-day technologies for faster response times, increased traffic flow, and safer trips for drivers.
