Portion of Fern Hollow Road closed, detour posted
A section of Fern Hollow Road in Sewickley Hills closed yesterday to traffic, PennDOT spokesman Jim Struzzi said.
It is expected to remain closed through December as crews work to repair a section of the roadway following a landslide that happened more than a year ago, Struzzi said.
The road will remain open to local traffic only.
More than 1,000 vehicles use the roadway on an average day, Struzzi said.
A detour is posted for motorists: From the south, motorists are advised to take Sewickley Creek Road west, turn right on Beaver Road in Leetsdale, travel west on Beaver Street, make a right on Main Street, turn right onto Ambridge Avenue, continue north as Ambridge Avenue becomes Big Sewickley Creek Road, bear right on Hitzell Hill Road and make a left onto Camp Meeting Road to reach Fern Hollow Road. From the north, the directions should be followed in the opposite direction.
