Benjamin Franklin Highway (Route 422) westbound and Route 28 southbound in East Franklin Township will be closed nightly from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. beginning on Friday, August 13 to Saturday, August 24. 
While eastbound Route 422 and northbound Route 28 are closed, motorists are directed to follow Business Route 422/Route 268.  

While westbound Route 422 and southbound Route 28 are closed, motorists are directed to follow Business Route 422/Route 268.

Please be advised of additional periodic single lane closures outside of the overnight closures throughout the remainder of the project. One lane of traffic will remain open both eastbound and westbound during the single lane closures.  Additional rolling closures for up to 20 minutes at a time may occur westbound or eastbound throughout the remainder of the project.

These closures are part of the construction of the Freeport Road (Route 3017) bridge, spanning Benjamin Franklin Highway (Route 422) and Route 28 in East Franklin Township, Armstrong County.  Construction of the Freeport Road (Route 3017) bridge began in November, 2017 and will be completed in the fall of 2018. During this time, an alternating traffic pattern will be controlled by temporary traffic signals.

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.
