Section of Route 228, I-79 ramps in Cranberry remain closed



For the second consecutive morning commute, the junction of three major highways in Cranberry continues to be closed.

Crews worked through the night Tuesday and Wednesday to repair utility lines in the wake of a strong storm that left nine utility poles toppled along Route 228. The road is closed between Route 19 and Cranberry Woods Drive and ramps to and from Interstate 79 are shut down as well.

Communication services to customers in the area just northeast of the damaged lines also is ongoing.

Township officials are hoping for at least a partial reopening by mid-afternoon today.

Access to the many businesses along the township’s key transportation corridor is possible via Franklin Road to the east of the affected intersection.
