I don't know if you're trying to be funny with the turnpike comment, but no, they are not installing the turnpike radio system along I-80.
Anyway, some other ideas....
To see where the cameras are along I-79, you can go here:
511PA - Travel Info To Go
There are no cameras currently operational on I-80 near 79.
It could be infrastructure related to the Intelligent Transportation System upgrade project going on in the NW part of the state:
PennDOT: Intelligent Transportation System Coming to Northwest Pennsylvania Interstates -- HARRISBURG, Pa., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --
That will bring traffic cameras to the area.
