Freedom Road Turnpike Bridge Project​


Project Overview

The Freedom Road Turnpike Bridge project will replace the existing structure carrying Freedom Road (SR 3020) over I-76, Pennsylvania Turnpike in Butler County. Work will include a new steel beam six-lane bridge, widening, paving, drainage, signal upgrade/replacement, and lighting work. As part of the accelerated bridge construction program, the structure will be constructed in sections off-site and moved into final position requiring only short term closures on the PA Turnpike or Freedom Road. 

The current work is for the construction of the eastbound lanes and bridge structure. During this phase, traffic will be moved onto the westbound lanes temporarily but keeping 2 way-two,  two lane traffic with a center turn lane. 

Work on the project began in the Spring of 2019 and is anticipated to be completed late Fall 2020.
