PennDOT crews will add another project to Route 65, a spokesman said Friday morning.
Beginning Monday, short-term single-lane closures will occur from 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily on Route 65 from Chestnut Street in Sewickley to the Beaver County line, PennDOT spokesman Jim Struzzi said.
Crews will be painting crosswalks, performing electrical work, repairing guide rails, installing ramps accessible to people with disabilities, concrete wall staining in various locations and other projects, Struzzi said.
Work is expected to last through April 30, he said.
Earlier this month, PennDOT announced an overnight single-lane closure of Route 65 in the same area. That project is expected to end later in the spring.
The work is part of a $5.1 million project started last year.
The overall 4.5-mile project included milling and resurfacing, drainage, guide rail, curbing, signs, signals, structure repairs and other improvements in Emsworth, Sewickley, Edgeworth, Leetsdale and Ambridge.In addition, Route 65 also serves as the detour for the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge closure.
