Northbound I-279 HOV Lane Off Ramp to McKnight is closing

May 17, 2018 ~ Access McCandless Staff

A press release issued today by PennDOT announced the closure of the McKnight Road off-ramp from the northbound I-279 High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes.

The off-ramp to McKnight Road from the northbound Parkway North HOV lanes is closed due to attenuator repair and concrete preparatory work.  The ramp will be closed until further notice.  All northbound traffic from I-279 to McKnight Road will use the McKnight Road/Evergreen Road (Exit 4) off-ramp.

The $87.94 million I-279 Parkway North Improvement Project includes concrete patching and overlay, preservation of 30 bridges and 49 overhead sign structures, repairs to 29 walls, ramp repairs, lighting improvements, HOV lane operation systems upgrades, sign upgrades, guide rail and drainage improvements, and an anti-icing system installation on bridges at the McKnight Road interchange.
