Penn Hills road improvements announced
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.
