Environmental Assessment: I-80 Reconstruction Project

Submitted by staff on

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 5-0, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) document in accordance with 23 CFR § 771, and the National Environmental Policy Act.

The EA considers improvements to I-80 from Interchange 303 (PA 611/North 9th Street) to Brodhead Creek, including Interchange 304 (US 209), Interchange 305 (BUS 209/SR 2012/West Main Street), Interchange 306 (SR 2004/Dreher Avenue), and Interchange 307 (PA 611/Park Avenue and PA 191/Broad Street). The preferred alternative meets the project needs to improve safety, reduce congestion and alleviate access and mobility concerns, while minimizing environmental impacts and addressing public and agency feedback.
