Work on this $5.61
million widening project began in November 2022. The majority of the work in
2023 will be utility relocation work on Route 50 in Collier Township. Work in
2024 will include roadway widening to accommodate exclusive left turn lanes at
the Washington Pike (Route 50) intersection with Vanadium Road. Additionally,
the Washington Pike and Vanadium Road intersection will be modified to a
standard plus intersection, eliminating the existing dual driveways at Eat’n
Park. The restaurant will be relocated further back from the roadway to allow
for the roadway widening and intersection improvements. Other work includes new
sidewalks, updated ADA curb ramps, traffic signal upgrades, signing and
pavement marking updates, drainage guide rail work, and other miscellaneous
construction. Motorists will see single-lane restrictions with one lane of
traffic maintained in each direction at all times. The turn lane and other
modifications at the Vanadium Road intersection are expected to help alleviate congestion
in this area.
