Traffic delays continue in O’Hara for flood cleanup
As flood cleanup continues in O’Hara after the July 11 storms, motorists should expect delays along Kittanning Pike near the Sharpsburg border.
The busy road will be restricted to single-lane alternating traffic from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through Tuesday, PennDOT announced.
Crews from Allison Park Contractors are conducting the emergency cleanup under the Kittanning Pike bridge that sits between North Canal Street and Kirkwood Drive.
Water rushed along the road, closing it and several others during the rainfall.
That day, the National Weather Service recorded at least 2.31 inches at Pittsburgh International Airport, falling short of the record of the daily record of 2.96 inches set in 1971.
O’Hara declared a state of emergency because of scattered flooding, and Aspinwall closed Delafield Road because water was cascading toward Freeport Road.
PennDOT officials said there also was flooding near the Sunoco station at the O’Hara/Blawnox border.
