US 30
Route 30 Relocation


The expressway was proposed to relieve the current US 30 alignment of congestion.  The alignment would have been south of the present route, beginning at the Parkway in Frick Park and traveling southeast through Braddock towards Irwin.  The eastern terminus would have been at the western end of the Greensburg Bypass.  Interchanges would have been constructed at the following locations:

A second section of the Route 30 Relocation would have begun on the eastern side of the Greensburg Bypass at the Mount Pleasant/Greensburg interchange and continue east to Latrobe.  Interchanges would have been constructed at the following locations:

The expressway would have met the current US 30 alignment at Beatty Road and continued east.  The right-of-way would have been upgraded to an expressway from that point to Ligonier, with an interchange built at PA 259.  However, the only interchange to be built was at PA 982.  In Ligonier, the third section would have branched off the current alignment to the south with interchanges at the following locations:

A bypass of Laughlintown would have been possible with this section of expressway.  Just to the east of the village is where the expressway would reconnect with the current alignment of US 30.
