WOW lets spend 28 million to fix something that will need to be redone before it is even started. An immediate fix is not 3 to 4 years away. It would be now.
What type of crack is Penn Dot smoking because they need to share. They are the lazies bunch of worthless a$$holes I have ever seen.

Unless they eliminate the north bound entry ramp to I-83 at Cedar Cliff it is a was of time and money

This should have been fixed 50 years ago when the split was created.

Yeah... It seems about that long to everyone who drives toward that interchange each day.

Seriously though, if they can prevent the last minute lane changes by those who ABSOLUTELY MUST get ahead of another car before getting in the right lane NB at the split, there might be fewer sudden stops and traffic waves.

a cattle chute lane divider starting a mile before the split would insure proper flow through the split.

A properly placed bullet between the eyes of the idiot sitting in the left lane, backing up traffic would do wonders! They would not be there the next day to do the same thing again, in a few months traffic would be flowing smoothly!

Calm down folks! YOU poor souls will be retired, the same as I, before this project is properly corrected!
The TOTAL consultation/survey/study FEES that will be spent in the NEXT 10 YEARS could easily pay for the project IF they began it IMMEDIATELY! Just a bit more study and PennDOT will get 'er rollin'! Hang in there a wee-bit longer.

Have to agree with all of the above - too little and WAY too late. And I can't even imagine the nightmare that will occur WHILE this temporary 'immediate fix' is being constructed!! If we have to go through that upheaval, why not just do it right in the first place, instead of a patch now and a (empty) promise for later? It's not like this hasn't been needed for the last half-century or anything...but why rush?
Here's my thing - I am searching for a new job, and sadly have had to restrict that search to available employment that does NOT require travelling any part of this stretch of highway (kind of tough since I live not far from there). The safety issues, stress, frustration and roadrage that accompany every rush hour sojourn through this bottleneck are not worth it to me due to the toll it takes on my physical and mental health. I made that trip daily for 3 years, and I'm sure many others have endured this for much longer. My nerves are shot and no one can pay me enough to make me willing to undergo this torture ever again.
