US 22 – Canoe Creek Intersection Improvements Project consists of roadway improvements along 1 mile of US 22 near Canoe Creek State Park in Frankstown Township, Blair County. The project includes realignment of 3 intersections to correct substandard geometry, allowing for the elimination of two existing intersections with US 22. Widening is provided on US 22 to accommodate left turn lanes at two intersections. An existing box culvert and bridge along US 22 are replaced and a new box culvert at SR 2022 is provided. Also included is the construction of ½ mile of new shared use trail including a precast box underpass to provide a connection between the existing Lower Trail and the north side of US 22 for future connectivity to the state park. Additionally, the design of the US 22 bridge over Canoe Creek provides a walkway on the upstream side that will be utilized by DCNR as they develop a connection to the new shared use trail and further expand the trail network within the park.
