ABOUT THE PROJECT
PA Turnpike 576, Section 55C2-1: The project extends from approximately one mile west of I-79 in Allegheny County through an interchange connecting PA Turnpike 576 with I-79 and ends at Morganza Road just north of Cecil-Henderson Road in Washington County. The construction of the interchange includes the partial reconstruction of I-79 from the Southpointe Road Interchange to Alpine Road. The project also includes two miles of PA Turnpike 576 mainline construction, three miles of I-79 reconstruction, seven interchange ramps, four bridges, two bridge widenings and two, new intersections with PA Turnpike 576 ramps and Morganza Road. Approximately six million cubic yards of earth will be moved for the construction. When complete, there will be three southbound I-79 lanes from Alpine Road to the Southpointe Interchange and there will be a free-flow interchange between I-79 and PA Turnpike 576.
