Penn Hills will repave seven municipal roads as part of its 2019 capital paving program.

The $540,000 project, awarded to Plum-based A. Liberoni Inc., is expected to begin in September, said Department of Public Works Director Scott Shepard.

The following roads will be repaved:

• Evernia Drive, from Clematis Boulevard to Frankstown Road.

• Datura Drive, from Long Road to Clematis Boulevard.

• Sentry Drive, from Nash Avenue to the end of the road.

• Loretta Drive, from the end of the road to Billy Drive.

• Darrell Drive, from Rodi Road to Stoneledge Drive

• Hauck Drive

• Rose Avenue, from the end of the road to Rosewood Drive.

The roads amount to about 1.5 miles of roadway.

Manager Scott Andrejchak said a larger repaving program will start next year thanks to a state grant of $3 million awarded Penn Hills in February. Andrejchak said those funds will be most likely used from 2020 through 2022.

“… Even though a particular road may not be included in our local program this year, it may end up on the upcoming three-year plan,” he wrote in an email.

The roads being considered through the repaving program under the grant include:

McAlister, Lomond, MacBeth, McKenzie, Dundalk, Yosemite, Everglade, Fielding, Seminole, National, Maple-Lo, Gardenia, Hibiscus, Woodgate, Elm, Davidson, Lowell, Kiltie, Westminster, Eastminster, Richmore, Hallwood, Rosanne, Laurel Valley and Loretta drives; Aster Street; Cloverleaf, Old Coal Hollow, Buchannon and Glendale roads; Brushton Avenue and Milbern Court.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
