Indiana, PA – Long term lane restrictions are planned for I-79 North beginning this week and continuing through early May from north of Exit 78 (SR 228-Cranberry) and south of Exit 87 (Zelienople). Once that work finishes, long-term lane restrictions will be in place on I-79 South in the same area.
The restrictions will be in place for a resurfacing project on I-79 in Cranberry and Jackson Townships, Butler County.
Nighttime paving operations will follow this work. Restrictions will be in place nightly between 6:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M., except Friday northbound restrictions begin at 9:00 P.M., and Sunday southbound restrictions begin at 9:00 P.M.
Work on I-79 includes milling, patching, and paving from Exit 76 (Cranberry) and Exit 88 (Little Creek Road) in Cranberry and Jackson Townships.
This $16.7 million Interstate resurfacing project is being constructed by Lindy Paving, Inc., and is expected to be completed by the end of October.
