NEW CASTLE, Pa.-- Orange barrels, flashing lights, crossovers and other traffic restricts are now greet drivers using the Interstate-79 and Route 422 interchange.
PennDOT says work crews are beginning a $14 million improvement project at the interchange on Exit 99 in Muddy Creek Township in Butler County near the Lawrence County line. The project includes rebuilding two bridges and a ramp.
PennDOT recently completed bridge reconstruction on the nearby Route 19 interchange that crosses over Route 422. I-79’s Exit 99 is a major interchange used by Lawrence County drivers. It’s also heavily used for visitors traveling to Moraine and McConnells Mill state parks.
