SEEDLING PLANTING ON AMOS K. HUTCHINSON BYPASS SET FOR APRIL 25

 SEEDLING PLANTING ON AMOS K. HUTCHINSON BYPASS SET FOR APRIL 25
 What: Seedling planting on Amos K. Hutchinson Bypass,
 Westmoreland County, Pa.
 When: Saturday, April 25, at 9 a.m.
 Why: Culminating Earth Week (April 20-25), the Pennsylvania
 Turnpike has recruited volunteers to plant 3,000
 seedlings donated by the Pennsylvania Game
 Commission. Ultimately the seedlings (scotch and
 white pine, Norway spruce, Japanese barberry,
 Washington hawthorne, amur honeysuckle, Asiatic
 crabapple and black locust) will provide wildlife
 food and cover along the roadway in several areas on
 the Amos K. Hutchinson Bypass near Greensburg, Pa.
 Who: About 300 volunteers are expected to participate in the
 planting. They include representatives from the
 Botanical Society of Westmoreland County, Green Ridge
 Garden Club, Church of the Brethren (Greensburg), St.
 Mark's Lutheran Church (New Stanton), plus members of
 Westmoreland County Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownies,
 and Girl Scouts.
 The event is being coordinated by David Cutlip, planner
 for the Maguire Group Inc., project manager for the
 Amos K. Hutchinson Bypass construction. (Cutlip is
 media contact at the event.)
 Note: This event is the one that was rescheduled from
 April 11 due to the unavailability of the seedlings.
 Where: New Stanton Borough in the vicinity of Arona Road where
 it meets with North East Drive
 Photo Opportunity:
 With shovels and digging devices, the volunteers will spend about half the day Saturday planting the seedlings at the designated site.
 Directions:
 From Pittsburgh:
 Enter the Pennsylvania Turnpike at either Allegheny Valley (No. 5) or Pittsburgh (No. 6) and go east exiting at New Stanton Interchange (No. 8). After exiting the toll booth, stay to the left and take the ramp which goes over U.S. 119 and I-70. It will bring you onto the combined U.S. 119 and I-70 (as if headed toward Greensburg). Immediately get into the left-hand lane (job site can be seen). Make the first left onto Arona Road.
 After you are on Arona Road, go about 1/10 of a mile and make a right turn. This is North East Drive. Go about 1/4 mile (job is on both sides of this road) and follow signs onto the job site for parking.
 From Greensburg:
 Follow Route 119 South through town as if heading for the turnpike at New Stanton. Just prior to where it meets I-70, Arona Road is on the right. Make a right turn onto Arona, go about 1/10 of a mile and make another right turn onto North East Drive. Go about 1/4 mile (job is on both sides of this road) and follow signs onto the job site for parking.
