Southern Beltway Projects - I-376 to U.S. Route 22
COMPLETED OCTOBER, 2006
The Southern Beltway I-376 to U.S. Route 22 Project, also known as the Findlay Connector, was the first to be constructed and opened to traffic in October 2006. This project begins at the existing Pittsburgh International Airport Midfield Terminal Interchange on I-376. It then proceeds southward 6 miles to a new interchange with U.S. Route 22 between the existing Bavington and PA Route 980 interchanges. This project received environmental clearance, the Record of Decision, in May 1998. The total project cost was $238 million.
CASHLESS TOLLING CONVERSION
(Completed Summer 2018)
This project converted the Findlay Connector (Toll 576) to all electronic tolling by constructing overhead gantries outfitted with E-ZPass Scanners and high speed cameras. The cashless tolling plaza is located at Milepost S-2.60, approximately 1.1 miles west of the Westport Road Interchange, Exit 4. The former toll plazas at Exit 2 (U.S. Route 30), Exit 4 (Westport Road), and Exit 6 (U.S. Route 22) have been demolished. This work is part of the PA Turnpike’s transition to Cashless Tolling.
