Long-term lane closures are expected to begin tomorrow along Allegheny River Boulevard in Oakmont and Verona.

PennDOT plans, weather permitting, to begin repair work on the bridge that carries the boulevard over Plum Creek.

Long term lane closures will occur between Seldon Avenue and College Avenue beginning at 7 a.m. Friday, Sept. 13. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction continuously through Friday, Oct. 18. Crews will conduct bridge improvements including concrete deck and approach slab repairs, guard rail improvement and concrete barriers.

The project is included in a $3 million contract for improvements on several roadways in Allegheny County. Work on Allegheny River Boulevard includes milling and resurfacing, base repairs, drainage upgrades, bridge improvements, line painting and other minor construction.

The Derry Construction Company, Inc. is the main contractor.

Motorists can log on to or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions on major roadways before traveling.
