Uniontown, PA – Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 12 is announcing nighttime single-lane restrictions on eastbound and westbound Interstate 70 in Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County.
Nighttime restrictions from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM are anticipated to occur Monday, October 23 through Friday, October 27, between Exit 44 (Arnold City) and Exits 46A (Uniontown) / 46B (Pittsburgh), depending on weather and operations.
Crews will be removing and resetting barrier to switch phases of traffic control.
This work is part of a $120.6 million Interstate 70 Project involving the widening and reconstruction of Interstate 70 along with the reconstruction of the Route 51 Interchange (Exit 46) to replace it with a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). To accommodate the new interchange, the plans include one mile of reconstruction and widening on Route 51, and several intersecting roadways, including the relocation of Finley Road and Route 981. The project is anticipated to be complete in October 2027.
