The Wolf Administration today announced that a project will begin in mid-March to improve the safety and mobility at the Route 228/Pittsburgh Street intersection in Adams Township, Butler County.
“This intersection safety and mobility improvement project will enhance travel on the vital Route 228 corridor in Butler County,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “All modes of transportation on Route 228 will be enhanced by through lanes in each direction as well as dedicated left and right turn lanes and bike lanes.”
This nearly $8 million improvement project is being constructed by Gulisek Construction, LLC, and is expected to be completed in May 2020.
Work on the project includes construction of turn lanes, signal improvements, drainage upgrades and replacement of an existing structure over an unnamed tributary to Breakneck Creek with a box culvert, and other miscellaneous construction.
For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by the state transportation funding plan (Act 89), or those on the department’s Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit www.projects.penndot.gov.
Motorists should slow down and use caution in work zones, and obey flaggers and other traffic control devices. Expect congestion and delays in the project area. Fines are doubled for violations in work zones. Drive responsibly for your safety and the safety of the workers.
