The signal is located in front of the Sheetz now under construction at the intersection.
After close to a year in the making, the new traffic signal at the intersection of Route 19 and Ehrman Road is set to go live later this week. Jason Kratsas, Cranberry’s director of engineering, said PennDOT is expected to put the signal into flash mode on Thursday, May 16. Kratsas said the signal would flash in yellow for motorists on Route 19.

Pennsylvania Treasury's Bureau of Unclaimed Property also lists a large number of Cranberry businesses with money due them—and there might be some out there for you, too.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Treasury receives millions of dollars in unclaimed property, including abandoned bank accounts, forgotten stocks, uncashed checks, certificates of deposit, life insurance policies, safe deposit box contents and recovered stolen property. Most of this unclaimed property is owed to individual residents (read below to find out how to search for yourself or a relative). However, there are a number of municipalities, school districts, fire and police departments, civic groups and other organizations that also have money waiting for them. The state website identifies the property as either "under $100" or "over $100" and the source of the property. A quick (and by no means complete) search of the state's website …
