Year-long road work in Monroeville to include ‘numerous’ restrictions

Dillon Carr

Work that will last a little over a year on one of Monroeville’s busiest roads will start Friday.

The nearly $11 million project includes replacing traffic lights, repaving, drainage improvements and structure work on the bridge connecting Route 22 to Route 286, said Steve Cowan, a PennDOT spokesman.

Cowan said the first few weeks will involve trimming trees in preparation for the other work.

He expects the project, which involves work on both east- and west-bound lanes, to be completed by June 25, 2020. There will be “numerous nightly and weekend lane restrictions,” Cowan said.

The work will be from the I-76 interchange to the county line in Murrysville. The project does not include the Route 22 and Route 48 intersection, said Paul Hugus, Monroeville’s engineering director.

The work is part of a $265 million federal Department of Transportation allocation to PennDOT for projects within District 11 that cover 270 miles of state roadways, 48 bridges and 23 landslides.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
