I-376 Banksville Interchange Project Online Virtual Public Open House Thursday

07/26/2021

Pittsburgh, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are pleased to invite you to attend one of two Virtual Public Open House sessions being conducted on Thursday, July 29th, 2021 to discuss the S.R. 376, Section A59 Banksville Interchange project.  Session One will be from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM and Session Two will be from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM. Public input throughout project development is very important to the success of the project. This briefing offers the opportunity to provide input and engage in a question and answer session with the project design team.

The meetings will be held:

Time: Session 1 – 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Session 2 – 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Date: Thursday, July 29, 2021

Location: Online only, link available online (see below)

The project consists of constructing new exit points from I-376 and Banksville Road (State Route 19) to Sawmill Run Boulevard (State Route 51) thus eliminating the weave movement that is currently present where Banksville Road merges with I-376 just before the Fort Pitt Tunnel.  These new exit points will consist of a new ramp from I-376 containing a bridge carrying traffic over Banksville Road and tying into a new slip ramp from Banksville Road.  The movement for traffic going from Banksville Road to the Fort Pitt Tunnel will still operate as it does today.  Other work consists of new retaining walls along the Banksville Road slip ramp, a new outbound fourth lane from Banksville to the Parkway Center Drive off-ramp, a new inbound third lane from the Parkway Center Drive on-ramp to the new I-376 exit ramp, and updated signing throughout the project.
