The Pennsylvania Turnpike is a major toll highway crossing Pennsylvania from Ohio to New Jersey. From the Ohio border to King of Prussia in the suburbs of Philadelphia, it is designated I-76. At exit 326 in King of Prussia, I-76 leaves the turnpike and cuts southeast to Philadelphia as the Schuylkill Expressway. The portion of the turnpike east of this interchange is designated I-276. Currently, I-276 ends at the border with New Jersey, where it becomes an extension of the New Jersey Turnpike that has an unsigned designation of I-95. Construction work is in progress to build an interchange between I-276 and the Delaware Expressway (I-95) in Pennsylvania, two highways that now cross with no interchange. Once this work is completed, the portion of I-276 east of this interchange will be redesignated I-95, making I-95 one continous route through Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
