Evening Drainage Work with Lane Restrictions on the Margaret Road Intersection Improvement Project, Armstrong County


Indiana, PA - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting motorists to evening drainage work on Monday, April 15 for the Margaret Road Intersection Improvement Project in Plumcreek Township, Armstrong County.

April 15, drainage will be installed 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM along U.S. Route 422 which will result in lane restrictions.  The new road and bridge are to be open later this summer/fall.

The Margaret Road Intersection Improvement Project will provide roadway realignment to improve the existing intersection, sight distance and geometrics along the U.S. Route 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 State Route 2005, locally known as Margaret Road. 

The project replaces an existing four-way intersection with a T-intersection relocated at a point west of the existing intersection. Numerous stormwater management facilities and new wetland areas will be constructed throughout the project limits.  Contractor, Plum Contracting, Inc. of Pittsburgh will be completing this $25 million with a projected completion date of June 2025.

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.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts
