Project Overview

Work has wrapped up on the first year of a multi-year project to improve nearly 11 miles of Interstate 90 in Summit, Springfield, Girard, and Fairview townships in Erie County.

The $37.6 million project includes the removal and replacement of the Huntley Road (Route 3012) Bridge in Springfield Township, Erie County. The new concrete bridge, which offers a higher clearance height for traffic on I-90, was opened on October 11, 2019.

Preservation work from mile marker 10 to mile marker 18 in Girard and Fairview townships and the creations of high-speed crossovers needed for the second year of the project was also completed during the 2019 construction season.
Work is expected to restart in late April 2020, weather permitting, and will include the reconstruction of 3.5 miles of I-90 – extending from the Ohio/Pennsylvania state line to just east of the Route 6N exits in Springfield Township, Erie County.

Along with reconstructing the roadway, work will include the installation of a new right-of-way fence and cable median barrier, brush removal, updated guiderail, and signs, as well as the design and construction of new sign foundations.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is urging motorists to be alert for changing traffic patterns and reduced speed limits on Interstate 90 near the Ohio state line in Springfield Township, Erie County as part of a reconstruction project.

Barriers are being set between the westbound lanes from the Ohio state line to Exit 3 (Route 6N, West Springfield/Cherry Hill). Eastbound lanes are expected to close May 8, 2020, weather permitting, and traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction using the westbound lanes.
