I-79 interchange work to start in Butler County

Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, 12:01 a.m.

A $14 million interchange project along Interstate 79 in Butler County was scheduled to begin Monday, PennDOT said.

PennDOT will rebuild ramps and roads at the interchange of I-79 and Route 422 in Muddy Creek and replace two bridges that carry I-79 over Route 422 and Muddy Creek. New overhead signs, a traffic monitoring camera and three digital message signs will be installed.

Crews will begin work by building temporary crossover lanes through the median on I-79. Short-term, single-lane closures will occur in both directions between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays through early March, PennDOT said.
