Especially right next to Westinghouse. That Freedom Rd/Rt 79/Rt 228/PA Turnpike bottleneck is an absolute disaster. And in addition to this project, we've still got the movie theater and the new housing developments yet to drop. God help us ...

Any easier to get to the airport from Cranberry?

not much up in Cranberry either... for eating out and entertainment.
Everyone lives in Sewickley. It's 20 mins up 79.

Man I've lived here right outside cranberry my whole life until 3 years ago. It's a much better place to be than my current locale outside of Philly. You think Cranberry is bad? You sirs have no idea. They're putting in the new ramps to 79 as we speak which will help alleviate some of the turnpike/79/228 traffic.

The person that said taxes is spot on. Butler county taxes are remarkably lower than Allegheny.

I'm glad to see the pens moving north of the city means when I'm in town to visit the folks I can swing by to watch a practice

I'm guessing you haven't been there recently or you're joking. That area is booming.

Cranberry and Cannonsburg (Southpointe) are almost identical distances from downtown. From Sewickly, Cranberry is about 5 miles closer. Plus, like others have said, there are no tunnels to deal with.
