[ARCHIVED] New Rochester Road turning lane grant accepted

Plans to add a new left turn lane to Rochester Road at Rt. 19 have taken another step forward. At its November 16 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors approved the contract documents for a federal Congestion Management Air Quality grant to widen Rochester Road, including its bridge over Coal Creek, at the road’s intersection with Rt. 19. A related right-of-way and temporary construction easement agreement with the adjacent Meeder farm will be considered for final action on December 7. Adding another left turn-only lane from Rochester onto Rt. 19 northbound will enable traffic turning onto 19 from both Rochester and Wisconsin to take place 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. With the Board’s approval, the project will be ready to bid in December through PennDOT’s acquisition process. The new lane is expected to be completed an in use by the end of next year.
