Mercer County - Route 418 Improvement Project
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to view a display of plans for a roadway improvement project along Route 418 (Mercer Avenue) in the City of Farrell, Mercer County.
The project will focus on new signals and pedestrian amenities at the intersections of Route 418 with Roemer Boulevard (Route 3006) and Route 518 (Sharon-New Castle Road). Work will also include creating a sidewalk along Route 518 to improve access to the nearby schools and businesses.
Plans for the project will be on display:
Date: January 21, 2020 to February 1, 2020
Time: 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: City of Farrell Municipal Building
500 Roemer Boulevard
Farrell, PA 16121
Work includes new mast arms, vehicle signals, ADA curb ramps, pedestrian signals and push buttons, sidewalks, and painted crosswalks. A traffic indicator and signal will also be placed at the driveway for 1801 Roemer Boulevard at the intersection with Route 418.
Construction of the sidewalks is expected to take place in the summer of 2020 with signal and mast arm placements happening the fall 2020 and spring 2021.
During a portion of the project, a detour using Route 518 and Roemer Boulevard will be in place. Traffic will also be controlled by flaggers.
