Ten Day Closure on Old Route 8 South in Butler County (Middlesex Township)

​The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is announcing a road closure on Old Route 8 South in Butler County (Middlesex Township) beginning August 23, 2021 at 7:00 a.m. through September 2, 2021.

The Old Route 8 South will be closed at the intersection with Parks Road.  The ten (10) day closure is for the realignment of Old Route 8 South.  The project will create a new, perpendicular intersection with Parks Road for improved site distance and safety.  This work is in preparation for the future construction of a cul-de-sac on Old Route 8 South to the south of State Route 228.

Motorists should detour using Parks Road to State Route 228 East to Old Route 8 South.

Independence Excavating of Independence, OH is the contractor on this $26.5 million project.
