Traffic Pattern Change – I 79 Northbound

North Strabane Twp., Washington County

Uniontown, PA – PennDOT District 12 would like to advise motorists that they will encounter traffic pattern changes as the Route 519 K20 project continues.

A utility contractor will pull cable across Interstate 79 Northbound on October 17, 2019 starting at 8:00 PM until 6:00 AM on October 18. In order to do this, there will be a single lane closure on Interstate 79 between Meadowlands and the Houston Exit during this time.

This project involves safety improvements to the intersections on Route 519 between I-79 and Route 19. Also, the I-79 ramps at Route 519. The project will add a turning lane on Route 519 from Route 980 to Interstate 79 two sets of signals at Route 519/Interstate 79 to control traffic at the on/off ramps, and Route 519 will be realigned and moved 150’ to the East to eliminate a 4-way stop condition and will be replaced with a new signal. The tentative completion date is in mid-October 2021. The contractor on this $26,773,781 project is Golden Triangle Construction Company, Inc.
