Route 119 ramp work to begin this fall in New Stanton
PennDOT plans to begin work this fall on reconstructing and repairing ramps at Route 119 and the Amos K. Hutchinson Bypass now that bids for the project have been received.
Golden Triangle Construction of Imperial is the apparent low bidder for the $3 million project in New Stanton and Hempfield that includes repairing concrete on a 600-foot section of Route 119.
The contractor will reconstruct portions of two ramps and will repair joints and patch areas on two other ramps.
The work also includes preserving bridges that carry ramps over Sewickley Creek and a rail line, and reconstructing the asphalt shoulder of an acceleration lane on northbound Route 119. There also will be updates of highway lighting, road signs and guide rail.
PennDOT expects to issue a notice to proceed with construction in mid-October, with completion anticipated by April 2020.
Potential detours will be determined through discussions among PennDOT officials and the contractor.
