Interstate 79 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike via Interstate 76 run through Cranberry Township. US Route 19 and Pennsylvania Route 228 are also important main roads in the municipality. These four roads are connected by a newly-completed interchange: the $44.3 million, joint PennDOT/Pennsylvania Turnpike venture, named the "Cranberry Connector Project," was local nuisance for several years, but after opening in early 2004 has effectively provided direct, non-stop connection between the heavily-traveled roads.
Additionally, the northern terminus of Interstate 279, an important artery that serves as the parkway north of Pittsburgh, is located a few miles south of the township. Cranberry Township is also the location of the northernmost bus service lines of the Port Authority of Allegheny County; however, some of these bus lines may be cut in upcoming Port Authority service reductions.More
