    Travel Advisory – Turnpike Closure

    Fri / PA Turnpike Between Lehighton and Allentown

    The PA Turnpike has announced a travel advisory which may affect some Woods Campers from the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, Reading, Harrisburg and parts of New Jersey.  If your route includes the PA turnpike north of the Lehigh Valley/Allentown interchange, please read the following:

    The PA Turnpike will be closed for most of this weekend (Friday 10/13 at 9pm to Monday 10/16 at 4am).  This is a new date after the original date was postponed.  Click here for details.

     

    Here’s some advice:

    • Plan your travel to camp to pass through this area prior to 9pm on Friday 10/13  If your plans won’t allow this…
    • Coming from Reading/Harrisburg – take 61 north to 443 east to Lehighton.
    • Coming from New Jersey – take 22 west to 33 north to 209 south.
    • Coming from Philly or the Lehigh Valley – do NOT follow the PA Turnpike suggested detour.  Instead, take 22 east to 145 north to 248 west to 209 north.  Philly travelers, this will add approximately 30 minutes to your trip.
    • The Woods is offering free Sunday night accommodations for anyone whose stay includes Friday and Saturday night.  If you leave camp on Monday, you will not be affected by the closure for your travel home.
    • If you must leave Sunday, follow the following directions instead of the PA Turnpike suggested detour:  From turnpike area, take 209 south to 248 east to 145 south to 22 west and hop on the PA Turnpike south.  This will add approximately 30 minutes to your trip.
