A public meeting will be held from 5:30 – 7:30 PM on Dec. 12 at the Fox Chapel Area High School to present the Route 28 Highland Park Interchange Reconstruction Project.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are pleased to invite you to attend a Public Meeting being conducted to inform you about the S.R. 0028 Highland Park Interchange Reconstruction Project. View a Map of the Route 28 Highland Park Reconstruction project here.

The purpose of the project is to address the existing bottleneck and congested traffic flow on S.R. 0028 (Allegheny Valley Expressway) and other operational and safety issues within the S.R. 0028 Highland Park Interchange. The project involves reconstruction of S.R. 0028, between S.R. 1003 (North Canal Street/Kittanning Pike) and the Delafield Avenue Interchange, to reestablish two travel lanes in each direction through the S.R. 0028 Highland Park Interchange and to improve acceleration and deceleration ramps.

Also proposed is reconstruction of the S.R. 0028 Ramps with the Highland Park Bridge and S.R. 1001 (Freeport Road) consisting mainly of the reconstruction of the existing pavement, bridge preservation work, and miscellaneous operational and safety improvements. Noise walls are also being evaluated as part of the project. The Highland Park Bridge river crossing and the Riverfront 47 Development are not part of this project.

During the Public Meeting, the project team will be available to present project details, the anticipated construction schedule, and proposed detour routes as well as answer any questions or discuss any issues or concerns you might have. Pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, PennDOT is also seeking input on identification of cultural resources and the project’s effect on these resources.
