Event location

Join us on September 21st, 2022 at 6:30pm to learn about the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles and about America’s first and only tunnel superhighway!

Presented by Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles

The Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles strives to educate the public on Pennsylvania’s transportation and road history. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is a key piece in that history.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike was the first of its kind and received nationwide acclaim as an engineering marvel. It 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.
