Interstate 70 Nightly Lane Restrictions and Rolling Stoppages to Begin Next Thursday in Westmoreland County


Uniontown, PA – PennDOT District 12 would like to inform motorists that nightly single-lane restrictions and rolling stoppages will occur in both directions on Interstate 70 in North Belle Vernon Borough and Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County, from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM beginning Thursday, March 2 until early June, weather and operational dependent.

The single-lane restrictions are necessary to set a temporary barrier along the shoulder of Interstate 70 under the Route 201 bridge.

Crews from Golden Triangle Construction Company, Inc. will be performing the work.

This $7.1 million project involves the replacement of the existing structure carrying Route 3007 (Fayette Street) over Interstate 70, including approach roadway along Route 3007, upgrades to the drainage, signing and pavement marking, and guide rail. In addition, the existing structure carrying Route 201 (Rostraver Road) over Interstate 70 will be raised approximately eight inches to provide adequate vertical clearance over Interstate 70, including replacing the bridge approach slabs, reconstructing the roadway, replacing the concrete curb, and updating the pavement marking. The project is anticipated to be complete in June 2023. 

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.
