Northbound Route 51 Single-Lane Restriction Begins Today in Westmoreland County


Uniontown, PA – Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 12 is announcing that a single-lane restriction begins today on northbound Route 51 between Concord Lane and the Route 981 intersection in Rostraver Township, Westmoreland County.

The restriction is anticipated through Wednesday, November 22, depending on weather and operations, as part of the traffic control phasing for the Interstate 70 at Route 51 Improvement Project.

A single-lane restriction on southbound Route 51, within the same span, began on Thursday, November 9 (as announced in a November 8, 2023 release).

Exercise caution, remain alert, and follow the posted signs and speed limits. Safety is everyone's responsibility.

Crews from Golden Triangle Construction Company are implementing the adjustment as part of the $120.6 million project for the widening and reconstruction of the I-70/Route 51 Interchange (Exit 46) and replacing it with a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). The project also involves several intersecting roadways including the relocation of Finley Road and Route 981. Construction is anticipated to be complete in October 2027. 

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 local alerts on X
