More about this marker. Interstate 70 shares the Pennsylvania Turnpike's roadway for 88 miles between Breezewood and New Stanton before continuing west on its own pavement. But in Breezewood I-70 travels for half a mile on the old Lincoln Highway (U.S. 30), complete with traffic lights and left turns into numerous parking lots before entering the turnpike using the turnpike's interchange with U.S. 30. Pennsylvania has never bothered to build an interchange between I-70 and the turnpike even though I-70 crosses the turnpike on a bridge two miles south of Breezewood. If you're traveling on I-70 to or from Washington or Baltimore, you have no excuse not to stop at The Gateway, and you should too: good food at reasonable prices 24 hours a day.
