Roads closing Feb. 25 for 45-day project to replace West View’s Martsolf Bridge

Tony LaRussa

Starting Monday, a stretch of Center Avenue in West View will be shut for about 45 days while a deteriorating bridge is replaced, borough officials announced.

Center Avenue will be closed between Frankfort and Park avenues while contractors demolish and replace the Martsolf Avenue Bridge. In addition to the road closure, the Martsolf public steps will be closed during the project.

All traffic, including Port Authority and North Hills School District buses, will follow a detour along Frankfort to Park Avenue or Frankfort to Richland to Ridgewood Avenue.

Because of constraints near the construction site, the borough is asking motorists to adhere to all “No Parking Here to Corner” or face being towed.

Work will be done during the day, but the road closure will be in effect around-the-clock.

“Many efforts have been made to repair the bridge over the last 10 years,” said manager Bruce Fromlak. “However it has gotten to the point where it must come down.”

Council approved demolition of the bridge on Feb. 14.

Port Authority will post stop changes for their routes and information and the school district is sending out notifications.

Questions about the detour should be directed to West View police Lt. Matt Holland at: [email protected] He also can be reached at 412-931-2800 Ext. 141.

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.
