I-79 Shoulder Restrictions Begin Monday in Allegheny County


​Pittsburgh, PA – PennDOT District 11 is announcing shoulder restrictions on southbound I-79 in Kennedy, Robinson, and Neville townships, and Glenfield Borough in Allegheny County will begin Monday morning, February 12 weather permitting.

Shoulder restrictions on southbound I-79 will occur between south of the Neville Island Bridge and the Route 60 (Crafton/Moon Run) interchange weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning Monday, February 12 through Friday, February 23. Crews will conduct ITS work.

This work is part of the $43.9 million I-79 “S-Bend” Project that includes full-depth pavement reconstruction, bridge preservation work on five mainline structures (I-79 northbound and southbound over Clever Road, I-79 northbound and southbound over Route 51, and the Neville Island Bridge). Additionally, there will be milling and paving of three ramps at the Route 51 (Coraopolis/McKees Rocks) interchange. The project also includes guiderail replacement, highway lighting and signing upgrades, new pavement markings and delineation, and other miscellaneous construction work.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, 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.
