A Commitment to Expansion
Recognizing the importance the Freedom Road corridor plays in making Cranberry Township a regional hub, the Board of Supervisors have been committed to improving that corridor for several decades. Although Freedom Road is a PennDOT Highway, the Board of Supervisors has been successful in obtaining a number of grants to make various improvements to several intersections in the Corridor.
The Board partnered with the Butler County Board of Commission to pursue federal grants to complete the improvements. That cooperative effort resulted in two major grant awards from the U.S. Department of Transportation through the BUILD program. In addition to the project to replace the Freedom Road bridge over the Turnpike, widening projects will result in the following improvements as depicted in the following graphics. Although the actually construction is overseen by PennDOT, the Township is taking an active role in advancing the project to ensure the federal funds are utilized in a timely manner.
