Inspector selected for Rochester Road widening project

Construction of a new left turn lane from Rochester Road onto Rt. 19 northbound will take place later this year. In preparation for the project, which involves two state roads, an independent inspector has been hired to make sure that PennDOT’s standards are being met. At its January 25 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors approved the purchase of construction inspection services from GHD for $90,000. The project, which will widen Rochester Road, including its bridge over Coal Creek, will enable traffic turning onto Rt. 19 from both Rochester and Wisconsin to occur at the same time rather than sequentially, as they now do. The time saved would be added to the green light cycle for Rt. 19 traffic. The new lane is expected to be completed and in use by the end of this year.
