SEEDLINGS TO BE PLANTED ON AMOS K. HUTCHINSON BYPASS

 SEEDLINGS TO BE PLANTED ON AMOS K. HUTCHINSON BYPASS
 What: Seedling planting on Amos K. Hutchinson Bypass,
 Westmoreland County, Pa.
 Why: In anticipation of 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.
 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.)
 When: 9 a.m., Saturday, April 11
 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 will be visible). Make the first left (there is a turning lane) onto Arona Road.
 After you are on Arona Road, go only 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.
 Directions 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 will be seen on the right. Make a right turn onto Arona, go about 1/10 of 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 for parking.
