Traffic restrictions connected to two major Interstate 79 resurfacing projects are set to begin this week, likely causing congestion on portions of one of the region's busiest highways.

A $2.84 million resurfacing on the interstate in Collier, Scott and Robinson will begin on Thursday and won't finish until September. The 4.8-mile stretch will force lane restrictions overnight on a daily basis between the Bridgeville interchange and Campbells Run Road overpass in Robinson, PennDOT said.

Restrictions will be as follows:

• Traffic reduced to a single lane in each direction from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Fridays.

• Traffic reduced to two lanes in each direction from 7 to 9 p.m. and 5 to 6 a.m. Monday through Fridays.

• Traffic reduced to a single lane in each direction from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

• Traffic reduced to two lanes in each direction from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

A second portion of I-79 work from the Wexford exit to the Butler County line is scheduled to begin on Aug. 4, but shoulder closures will occur 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday to Friday in Marshall as crews assess work locations.

Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in both directions during construction on that stretch from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Mondays through Thursdays. On the northbound side, traffic will be reduced to a single lane from 10 p.m. to 9 a.m. overnight Fridays and from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. overnight Saturdays. Southbound lane restrictions will occur 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. overnight Fridays and 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. Saturdays.
