PennDOT to Display Plans for Route 418 Project in the City of Farrell, Mercer County


​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: 

Dates:          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 include 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 in the fall of 2020 and spring of 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.

The information offered at the plans display is also available online at by clicking on the Public Meetings link under the Resources heading and then choosing the box labeled Mercer County – Route 418 Improvements.
