Projects in Cranberry Township
Freedom Road Bridge over PA Turnpike
The Freedom Road Turnpike Bridge project involves the complete replacement of the structure carrying Freedom Road (Route 3020) over the Pennsylvania Turnpike at Milepost T-28.01 in Cranberry Township, Butler County. The goal of this project is to completely replace the existing bridge with a wider one that has additional travel lanes to accommodate the high traffic volumes on Freedom Road. Sidewalks will be included. The new structure will also be lengthened to accommodate future reconstruction of the Turnpike which will include an additional travel lane in each direction. The design and construction of this project is being administered by PennDOT District 10 with the participation of the PA Turnpike Commission.
Project start date: February 4, 2019 Work in 2019 to include utility relocation with bridge construction in 2020. There are no anticipated traffic delays or detours at this time. Preparations will include tree trimming, utility work, and survey layout. Short-term utility traffic control is expected to start this spring for utility relocation.
I-79 NB & SB Bridges over North Boundary Road
This project is currently scheduled for construction in 2019 and 2020

Route 19 & St. Francis Way Signal Upgrade
This project is scheduled for construction in 2019
This project will upgrade the existing traffic signal at the intersection of Rt, 19 and St. Francis Way/Cranberry Mall entrance. The signal was constructed in 1987 and improvements to the intersection would bring it up to current construction standards and incorporate much needed pedestrian and ADA accessibility measures. Additionally, will evaluate the current signal phasing to improve congestion management and vehicle flow throughout the intersection and the southern portion of the Rt. 19 corridor in the Township. This is a grant project jointly funded by Cranberry Township.
