Uniontown, PA – PennDOT District 12 would like to let motorists
know that traffic patterns will be changing on Interstate 70 at the New Stanton
Interchange. All four lanes of traffic (both west and eastbound) are scheduled
to switch over to a temporary bypass along the westbound side of Interstate 70
along the new westbound On-Ramp area.
Westbound traffic will be moving onto this bypass Monday night
7/11/16 and then in approximately two weeks the eastbound traffic will be moved
onto this by-pass as well.
The transitions onto the new temporary bypass will be at the old
Hunker exit area on the Eastern end and at the Waltz Mill Bridge area on the
Western end of the project.
Traffic will continue to flow with 2 lanes in each direction
unrestricted with only nighttime lane closures allowed if required.
This traffic pattern change will allow the contractor to
continue to construct the new roadway and Hunker Bridge.
