Lane closures

Lane closures will occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. July 27-31 on Route 50 in South Fayette Township.

Periodic stops will occur in both directions are to take place between Route 978 and Reissing Road. Beaver Excavating Co. is removing temporary bridge deck overhangs, located above the traveling lanes, as part of the Southern Beltway construction project.

Road closure

The Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced that the start of a closure on part of the 1800 block of Painters Run Road in Scott Township has been delayed

The closure now is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. July 20 and is expected to last at least one week. Closing the road is necessary for work on Painters Run Bridge No. 9, including repairs to the bridge deck, installation of guide rail, and paving.

The change in start date is caused by a delay in the completion of nearby utility work. When the closure begins, traffic will be detoured using Bower Hill Road, Kelso Road and Robb Hollow Road.

The work is part of an ongoing project on Painters Run Road that also requires short stoppages in work zones between Bower Hill Road in Scott Township and Cedar Boulevard in Mt. Lebanon. Those stoppages, which are expected to end in November, are needed for structural repairs to Painters Run Bridge No. 3, roadway drainage and base repairs, guide rail installation, and milling and paving.

The project is being done by Northeast Paving, a division of Eurovia Atlantic Coast, LLC, of Pittsburgh, as part of the $10.7 million 2019 Capital Roads contract.
