Commuters on Route 19 at the border of Cranberry and Marshall Township near the Thorn Hill Industrial Park may want to allow themselves some extra time starting Monday.

The new ramps leading to I-79 are expected to increase traffic flow in the area.
You’ve seen the orange cones and the bulldozers moving around earth in the area for months, now PennDOT’s plans to add new northbound and southbound on-ramps leading from Route 228 to Interstate 79 are really about to “ramp up.” “It’s going to result in more efficient travel through the area and less congestion,” said Mark Rozich, project manager for PennDOT District 10. The $14.78 PennDOT project eliminates two turning movements from Route 228 to I-79, improving access for motorists. Included in the construction are a new northbound on-ramp, a new southbound loop ramp and the reconstruction of the southbound off-ramp at the interchange of I-79 and Route 228. Currently, westbound drivers on Route 228 who want to get on I-79 must turn left…
