PITTSBURGH (KDKA)– PennDOT has issued an update on potential delays that fans could face when traveling to State College for the Pitt vs. Penn State game.
The highly-anticipated game kicks off at noon on Saturday, September 14.
Fans and other travelers can expect the following restrictions based on their starting locations:
From the Harrisburg area:
• On U.S. 22 in Juniata County, traffic is restricted to one lane in each direction about a mile east of the Arch Rock interchange. This zone also features a 12-foot width restriction.
• On U.S. 322/22 in the Burnham area west of Lewistown in Mifflin County, eastbound and westbound traffic is restricted to one lane each direction.
• On U.S. 322 from the Mifflin/Centre County line through the village of Potters Mills, traffic is restricted to one lane in each direction. Travel delays are likely. This zone also features 12-foot and 14-foot width restrictions.
From the Pittsburgh area:
• On U.S. 22 in the Monroeville area of Allegheny County, there is a single-lane restriction for eastbound traffic Friday night through Monday morning, September 13-16. The single-lane restriction is located between Alpine Village Drive and Cavitt Road. Restriction hours are 8 p.m. Friday night continuously through 6 a.m. Monday morning. Crews will conduct concrete patching and paving operations. No restrictions will occur in the westbound direction.

• On U.S. 22, there are lane restrictions (one in each direction) in the Armaugh area from 2 miles west of Route 56 interchange to a half-mile east of the Route 403 interchange. This zone also features a 10-foot width restriction.
From the Lock Haven area:
• On Route 26, there is a traffic signal at the end of the I-80 westbound off-ramp at the Bellefonte/161 exit. This traffic pattern should alleviate major congestion and back-ups on I-80 westbound approaching the Bellefonte exit.
