You know, everyone always says that I-68 doesn't add "a huge amount of 
time," but no one ever goes into specifics.  Looking at the map, it 
seems to me that the PA turnpike, as much as people hate it is pretty
much the hypotenuse of a right triangle with I-68 as the bottom of it.
Now as any good geometry student knows the hypotenuse is the much 
shorter length.  Even with construction, I think the turnpike will
remain the faster way.
