Indiana, PA – Alternating overnight closures are scheduled as part of the construction of the Freeport Road (Route 3017) bridge, spanning Route 422 (Benjamin Franklin Highway) and Route 28 in East Franklin Township, Armstrong County.  The planned road closures will occur as needed to remove superstructure framework.  Closures may occur as follows:

  • Route 422 (Benjamin Franklin Highway) westbound and Route 28 southbound in East Franklin Township may be closed overnight from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. beginning on Monday, December 10 through Friday, December 14. While westbound Route 422 and southbound Route 28 are closed, motorists are directed to follow Business Route 422/Route 268.

OR*

  • Route 422 (Benjamin Franklin Highway) eastbound and Route 28 northbound in East Franklin Township may be closed overnight from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. beginning on Monday, December 10 through Friday, December 14. While eastbound Route 422 and northbound Route 28 are closed, motorists are directed to follow Business Route 422/Route 268. 

*Closure of Route 422 westbound/Route 28 southbound will not occur on the same nights as the closure of Route 422 eastbound/Route 28 northbound.

Please be advised of additional periodic single lane closures outside of the overnight closures throughout the remainder of the project. Additional rolling closures for up to 20 minutes at a time may occur westbound or eastbound throughout the remainder of the project.

One lane of traffic on Freeport Road (Route 3017) will continue to remain open controlled by temporary traffic signals.  Construction of the Freeport Road (Route 3017) bridge began in November, 2017 and will be completed in the end of 2018.

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may change. 

The bridge replacement is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. Replacement of this bridge will allow PennDOT to remove it from Armstrong County’s structurally deficient bridge list.

This bridge is referred to as JV-368 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impacts on motorists.
