TRAFFIC FLOW IN SEWARD TO BE AFFECTED BY BRIDGE PROJECT
New temporary signals control 56/711 intersection

7/24/2013

Here’s another reason to use Cramer Pike for travelers going from Indiana County toward Johnstown: PennDOT yesterday announced that single-lane alternating traffic signals will control the flow of vehicles moving through the Route 56/Route 711 intersection in Seward from now until mid-September.

 

Workers have begun constructing a new retaining wall nearby and the intersection will be rebuilt as well, as part of the $6.2 million project to replace the bridge on Route 56.  The bridge carries the highway over the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks and Seward’s 10th Street.  The new structure will be three feet higher and will be shorter in length, and 10th Street is being relocated to connect directly to Route 56.

 

Drivers wishing to use Haws Pike coming out of Indiana County can still take Power Plant Road to New Florence and come back to Seward on Route 711, which is known as the “Seward Stretch”, but the more advisable route is to use Route 22 to Route 403 and travel the Cramer Pike to Johnstown.

 

The project is expected to be completed in October.
