Marginally related to bikes.

Got a notice in the mail that Penn dot is looking at SR 28 and highland park interchange.  My house is on the hill above it but abuts the highway.

Notice said that penndot surveyors may be on our land.

Anyway, general questions- are project plans , even in infancy, available online?  If so, where?

I figure this will tangentially help us bikers to know where to look in the future with penndot projects.

Thanks.

Project No: 91845
Title: PA 28/Highland Park Bridg
Type of Work: Interchange Improvement

It leads to this report (PDF), but it’s just one page with not much detail. There’s also a link to a “video log”, which has lots of tiny details on each segment of roadway (how many drains on this particular 34 feet of exit ramp, that sort of thing).

The PDF probably has the most useful info:

Work Can Begin: 10/14/2019 (Estimated)

Completion Date: 02/13/2021 (Estimated)

Project Limits:

SR 0028 (Allegheny Valley Expressway) at the Highland Park Bridge Interchange (S.R. 8050) between Highland Park Bridge Road (S.R. 1005) and the Delafield Avenue Interchange in Aspinwall and Sharpsburg Borough and O’Hara Township, Allegheny County.

Narrative:

Interchange improvement to address the existing bottleneck conditions by reestablishing and accommodating two continuous through lanes through reconstruction and lane restriping within the existing roadway footprint with minor widening on SR 28 (Alle

Got it. Thanks for the info. I knew they were going to make 28 north two lanes under the job but didn’t know when.
