Virtual Plans Display Unveiled for Arnold City Interchange in Westmoreland County


Uniontown, PA – Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 12-0, along with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), invites the community to participate in a Virtual Plans Display of the Arnold City Interchange Improvements Project in Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County.

The project connects Route 3011, Finley Road, Indian Hill Road, and Daugherty Lane to Interstate 70 in Rostraver Township and is intended to improve safety and traffic operations at the interchange and along I-70. The project area is approximately 1.75 miles long, extending from the I-70 bridge over the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad to 1.37 miles east of the Arnold City Interchange. 

The scope includes widening the median from four feet to 10 feet and the outside shoulders from 10 feet to 12 feet. The reconstructed interchange will utilize a diamond configuration with a five-leg roundabout which will connect the eastbound ramps with Indian Hill Road and Finley Road. The westbound ramps will be reconstructed as standard diamond ramps with an unsignalized intersection. The roadway will be shifted approximately four feet to the north to accommodate the widening.

Information on the Arnold City Interchange Improvements Project, including a short overview and an online comment form, is available online. The virtual plans display can be accessed on the PennDOT website for two weeks – Friday, October 20 through Friday, November 3.

Visit PennDOT District 12 website at Click on the Public Meetings/Studies link under the District Links heading. Click the Westmoreland County box, and select the Arnold City Interchange Improvements Project tile.

The purpose of the online plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project's potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation's 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
