Route 22 traffic delays expected along Monroeville, Murrysville border
Drivers along Route 22 near the Monroeville-Murrysville border should expect delays in the evening through at least Friday.
A contractor for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has begun work installing a new drainage pipe along Route 22 westbound at the intersection of Old William Penn Highway.
The contractor, Carmen Paliotta Contracting of Pleasant Hills, began the project earlier this week. Traffic patterns will be adjusted from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. through Friday. The right lane of Route 22 and the turning lane of Old William Penn Highway will be shut down near the intersection.
The Route 22 work is part of a $582,929 project repairing roadways at three slide locations. Work was completed on Trafford-Murrysville Road, just south of the Turnpike Bridge, in Penn Township and Route 993 east of Irwin last month.
PennDOT officials and Murrysville police warn drivers to proceed with caution through the work zone.
