Project Overview

The Ohiopyle Intermodal Gateway project will reduce current conflicts between vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and boat renters traversing Route 381. It will create a safer and better connection between the Borough of Ohiopyle and Ohiopyle State Park with improved parking, sidewalks, crosswalks, and traffic-calming measures. 

NOTICE: The highway and pedestrian construction work at Ohiopyle was suspended on March 17 due to the COVID-19 outbreak and work did not resume until April 7th. As a result, the construction team lost 21 days in the construction schedule. Before the COVID delay, the project was due to finish on June 12. Therefore, the new completion date is July 3rd, 2020. The construction team is working to have sections of the project near the visitors center sustainably completed by Memorial day in order to minimize the impact the construction will have on the tourist traffic during the busy summer months. To address Borough and Park concerns finishing work will be performed with small crews during weekdays in July and part of August and will not take up valuable real-estate in the park during this busy time of year. This will allow all work on the project to be completed, including extras and cleanup, before September 1st.
