2-year project to improve Route 228 intersection starts this month
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.
