Project Overview

$13.4 million project to improve safety and efficiency of Depot Road (Route 531) in Harborcreek Township, Erie County is scheduled to start later this month.

This project includes improvements to 1.3 miles of Depot Road (Route 531) from just south of Interstate 90 to just north of McGill Road. Work will include reconstruction of the existing roadway, widening of the shoulders, adjusting the slope of the roadway, and the creation of a turn lane in front of Clark Elementary School. There will also be updates to the drainage, pavement markings, signs and guiderails.

The contractor is Lindy Paving of New Galilee, PA. The contract cost is $13,489,560, which is to be paid entirely with state funds.​

Project Schedule

Work will be completed in four phases. Construction is expected to begin June 17, 2024, weather permitting, and is expected to be completed by October 2025.​​

The first phase is expected to be completed in 2024. It will include work throughout the project area and will require lane restrictions, traffic pattern shifts, and usage of temporary signals.

Phases two, three and four are scheduled to take place in 2025. This will include work near the I-90 interchange, which will require a detour using Route 430 (Station Road) and I-90.
