Oil City, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is holding a public comment period for work planned on East State Road (Route 2006) in Cranberry Township, Venango County.

The project will include resurfacing East State Road from Route 257 to Hill City Road (Route 2015). Additional work will include the replacement of a deteriorated metal pipe culvert that is located on East State Road between the intersections of Horsecreek Road and Hill City Road (Route 2015). The pipe will be replaced with a concrete pipe and the roadway will be reconstructed in that area.

A portion of East State Road is expected to be closed for approximately two days during the replacement of the pipe culvert. A 8.6-mile detour will be posted using Hill City Road, Mapleshade Road (Route 2004), Route 322, and Route 257.

Work is expected to occur during the 2023 construction season. It will be part of a contract that also includes paving on Deep Hollow Road (Route 3025) from Route 322 to Bredinsburg Road (Route 2006) and Rockland Cranberry Road (Route 2013) from East Sandy Creek Bridge to Route 322.

The public comment period for the East State Road Project, which will be held online only, includes a handout and an online comment form. It will be open until April 11, 2023, and can be accessed by visiting the PennDOT District 1 website,

Those unable to access the study online may give feedback by contacting PennDOT Project Manager Ben Vincent, P.E., at or (814) 678-7367.

The purpose of the public comment period is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project. It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The project documents will be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested. If you need translation/interpretation services or have special needs or have special concerns that require individual attention, contact Ben Vincent, P.E., PennDOT Project Manager at or 814-678-7367.
