Lions Road and Ramp Closures Next Step in Route 422 Work in Butler, Franklin and Connoquenessing Townships, Butler County


Indiana, PA – PennDOT is announcing two closures as part of the Route 422 Project in Butler, Franklin and Connoquenessing Townships, Butler County.

June 17 through 23, 2024, the ramps at the Route 422/356 interchange will be closing on alternating schedules for repairs.  Closures will be 7 PM to 6 AM and are weather dependent.  Detours signs are in place for each ramp and motorists should follow the detour routes during ramp closures or find alternative routes.

In addition, Lions Road will be closed June 18 through the end of August 2024.  The bridge will be raised with new decking and additional construction.  To detour, motorists will travel Route 3036/New Castle Road to Route 3031/North Eberhart Road to Route 68 to Route 3007/South Benbrook Road.

The project includes patching, updating drainage and guide rail, and replacing the concrete median barrier.  Also included is the paving of the Route 8008 ramps (Route 356 interchange) and rehabilitation of the structure on Lions Road (Route 3031). 

Contractor, Lindy Paving of New Galilee, PA, will be completing this $10 million project that will conclude October 11, 2024.
