"The project calls for repaving and widening Thornton Street from the Sharon city line to Forker Boulevard, and altering the intersection of Thornton and Forker near Buhl Park from a Y alignment to a T set-up.
Work will also include the addition of bike lanes on both sides of Thornton. The new bike lanes will connect with soon-to-be-built bike lanes in Sharon and follow Thornton to Forker and then to Hazen Road.
When the project is completed bicyclists will be able to travel from Sharon to the park on dedicated bike lanes, said Jeremy Coxe, Hermitage’s assistant director of planning and development.
“We’re almost 100 percent complete on the design, we’re just waiting to get the final approvals now,” Coxe said.
PennDOT has scheduled the project for construction in 2020, although Coxe said Hermitage officials would like to get the worki underway during the 2019 construction season."
