Two seasons of traffic restrictions are in store for drivers on Interstate 79 in Butler County, starting today.
A $14 million project will improve the interchange at Exit 99, Route 422 in Muddycreek and includes replacement of two bridges and ramp and roadway reconstruction.
The work that begins today will be construction of crossovers through the median. Starting next month, northbound traffic will cross to the southbound side, with single-lane traffic in both directions. That will allow replacement of the northbound bridge. The southbound bridge will be replaced next season, with the overall project scheduled for completion in fall 2014.
Short-term lane restrictions are possible from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays through early March while the crossovers are built.
