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 were 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.
The project will also 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.
No detours are expected for traffic on Interstate 90, but motorists will encounter lane restrictions, with traffic controlled by signs and devices.
