PennDOT Says Work Will Continue on Route 422 East in January 2018

A traffic pattern change is planned next month on Wray Plan Road as part of the Wray Road Cut Project in Kittanning and Manor Townships, Armstrong County.

Beginning the first week of January, traffic will access Wray Plan Road from the newly constructed Wray Plan Road and Route 422 intersection.

Daytime intermittent traffic stoppages continue throughout the project area. The ten-foot lane restriction continues in both directions.

This $9.9 million safety improvement project is being constructed by Independence Excavating Incorporated, and is expected to be completed in late Fall 2018.

The project includes the realignment of Route 422 between Ping Wing Road and Lasher Road and concrete patching through the Route 28/422 Interchange.

Drivers should slow down and use caution in work zones. Obey flaggers and other traffic control devices. Expect congestion and delays in the project area. Fines are doubled for violations in work zones. Drive responsibly for your safety and the safety of the workers.
