The Margaret Road Intersection Improvement Project is realigning the roadway to improve the existing intersection, sight distance and geometrics along the U.S. 422 corridor between Indiana and Kittanning. The project incorporates two new structures consisting of a two-span bridge and a concrete box culvert. The two-span bridge is over Cherry Run and spans Route 2005, locally known as Margaret Road.
Two new structures and a box culvert are being added to accommodate the realignment which replaces an existing four-way intersection with a T-intersection relocated west of the current intersection. Numerous stormwater management facilities and new wetland areas will be constructed throughout the project limits. Work began in October 2022 and will continue through June 2025.
"The Margaret Road Intersection Improvement Project will improve the safety of this intersection as well as the mobility needs along State Route 422," said District Executive Brian Allen
This project was funded through the Surface Transportation Program (STP) which provides flexible funding that may be used by States and localities for projects to preserve and improve the conditions and performance on any federal-aid highway, bridge and tunnel projects on any public road, pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, and transit capital projects, including intercity bus terminals.
