Roadwork and the road closures that come with it continue in the local municipalities.

Headaches are now hitting those drivers who use Greentree Road near Old Washington Pike in Scott.

PennDOT announced that work that began earlier this month near the bridge over Chartiers Creek will continue for weeks.

The work requires single-lane closures taking place from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Old Washington Pike and Greentree Road will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Monday, weather permitting, the following weekends:

• Nov. 2-5

• Nov. 9-12

PennDOT will post signs to guide motorists during the weekend closures, said Jim Struzzi, PennDOT spokesman.

This $6.8 million, 3.5-mile project includes milling and resurfacacing, drainage, curb, signing, pavement markings, signals, bridge rehabilitation and preservation, and other improvements on Route 50.

Swank Associated Companies of New Kensington is the prime contractor.

PennDOT also is replacing a bridge at Presto-Sygan Road in Collier and South Fayette townships, not far from the Greentree Road work.

The bridge carries Presto-Sygan Road over Thoms Run Road, Struzzi said. Work includes replacing the bridge superstructure and road, and drainage improvements.

This work is scheduled to conclude in November.
