Commuter Information

Cranberry has the good fortune of being at the crossroad of two Interstate highways – the east-west Pennsylvania Turnpike, I-76, as well as the north-south I-79. Those road connections have made Cranberry easily accessible from locations throughout the region and beyond. The Township is about a half-hour ride from downtown Pittsburgh and less than 40 minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport.

A well-maintained network of state highways and Township-owned roads serve local traffic. An emerging series of connector roads provides local residents with alternatives to Cranberry’s busy highways. A cutting-edge Traffic Operations Center constantly monitors traffic along its major corridors and regulates traffic signals in and near the Township to optimize flow.
