Work to improve Duncan Avenue and a sliver of Ferguson Road, also known as Route 4024,in McCandless will begin Monday, weather permitting, PennDOT officials have announced.

Work includes milling and resurfacing the roadway and shoulders, base repairs, drainage and guide-rail upgrades, pavement markings and other minor improvements. Overall work will conclude in August.

To allow the necessary work to occur, traffic will be restricted to a single alternating lane between Babcock Boulevard and Thompson Run Road weeknights from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Flag crews will assist traffic moving through the work areas. Periodic stops should be expected. In addition, police will be posted to control traffic at the Peebles Road, Babcock Boulevard and Thompson Run Road intersections.

The project is included in a $2.5 million contract with The Lane Construction Co. of Pittsburgh for improvements on several roadways in Allegheny County.

PennDOT officials urge motorist to use caution, slow down and allow extra time when traveling through the area.
