A two-year, $8 million project to improve the intersection of Route 228 and Pittsburgh Street in Adams Township will begin in mid-March, the state announced.

The intersection is about 4 miles east of Interstate 79 in Cranberry and used by some from the Alle-Kiski Valley as a shortcut to there.

“This intersection safety and mobility improvement project will enhance travel on the vital Route 228 corridor in Butler County,” Gov. Tom Wolf said. “All modes of transportation on Route 228 will be enhanced by through lanes in each direction, as well as dedicated left- and right-turn lanes and bike lanes.”

Gulisek Construction of Mt. Pleasant is the contractor.

It's expected to be finished in May 2020.

Work includes construction of turn lanes, signal improvements, drainage upgrades and replacement of an existing structure.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
