Interstate 70 West approaching Exit 168 - 1 mile. You can also see the speed limit sign in the background, which states that the speed limit is 55 mph. It stays at 55 mph for about the next 23 miles, which is extremely lame if you ask me.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

All traffic looking to stay on Interstate 70 West and merge onto the PA Turnpike should remain in the right lane from this point on.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

To stay on Interstate 70 West, you should follow the PA Turnpike West to New Stanton, where I-70 once again branches off from the turnpike.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

Interstate 70 West approaching the infamous Breezewood interchange. To stay on I-70 West/get to the PA Turnpike, you will merge right at the upcoming intersection, as the signs will indicate.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

At the said intersection, this sign directs traffic to merge right at this point to continue toward the turnpike.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

You are now on US 30 East briefly, as it connects Interstate 70 West to the PA Turnpike. You will want to exit off to the right just ahead to stay on I-70 West/enter the PA turnpike, as the sign indicates.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

This is the point where you exit off of US 30 to get to the turnpike, as the signs say.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

Road view from the connector road which takes you from US 30 East to the toll plaza for the turnpike. As the sign says, the toll plaza is 1 mile ahead.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).

Now that all that stuff is over, once you are past the toll plaza at this point, you will be able to merge onto either Interstate 76 East toward Harrisburg, or Interstate 70/Interstate 76 West toward Pittsburgh.  (Photo taken 8/14/10).
