Work to Improve I-79 Bridges Begins Between Cranberry and Wexford

Two lanes will remain open on the interstate in each direction.

Work to improve bridges on Interstate 79 in the area between the Cranberry (Exit 78) and Wexford interchanges (Exit 73) will occur Tuesday through Friday, weather permitting, PennDOT District 11 announced.

As crews install delineators on I-79, intermittent single-lane closures will occur as needed in both directions from 9 a.m. to 3 pm. Two lanes will remain open on I-79 in each direction at all times.

Work will also occur to replace lighting under the bridge that carries I-79 over Warrendale-Bayne Road.

Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction on Warrendale-Bayne Road from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.       

This work completes a $10 million project to improve the I-79 bridges over Warrendale-Bayne Road and Mingo Road and the northbound off-ramp to Route 19. 

The prime contractor is Swank Construction Co. LLC of New Kensington.

And how many months will this take to complete? PENNDOT has been creating chaos on Rt 19 for months and months and months. I'm sure the businesses along that route love it. Now they will have at screwing up an Interstate?
