PA: PA 65 Revisions
« on: June 24, 2021, 12:21:56 pm »
PA 65: Added Crows Run Rd (CroRunRd) and shaping point. Split 9thSt into 3rdAve_S and 3rdAve_N due to both halves being way more than 0.5 miles from each other. (9thAve in-use by pahighways was put under the hidden point +X(9thSt). Changed PA65TrkMcK to BriHeiBlvd.

PA 65 TRUCK (McKees Rocks): Deleted as weight-restriction that created this route has been removed. Edited points on PA 51 related to the deletion of this route.

There are still signs on Ohio River Blvd (PA 65) in Ben Avon stating Weight Limit 32 Tons (except combinations, 40 tons) on the Spruce Run Bridge.  I've also still seen Truck 65 signs on I-79 around Neville Island.  Did PennDOT announce this removal, but neglect to take down the signs?

It is very possible that District 11 just did not remove the signs for some reason.  There are still US 209 TRUCK signs on PA 115 in District 5 even though the weight restrictions were removed for the bridge from that route.

Out of curiousity, did you end up seeing these signs as a result of the weekend closures on I-79 around Neville Island?  (https://www.penndot.gov/regionaloffices/district-11/pages/details.aspx?newsid=5463)

EDIT (10-18-2021): I am going to email District 11 to check on this.

The response I received from District 11 is that the weight-restriction has been removed with the signs themselves having not been removed by maintenance yet.  As a result, there is nothing else to do here.
