Parts of Brownsville Road to close for bridge rehab project

Madasyn Czebiniak

Parts of Brownsville Road in two South Hills boroughs will close next month as part of a $1.37 million bridge rehabilitation project.

The Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced this week that Brownsville Road between Linhart Lane in Baldwin and Streets Run Road in Whitehall will close at 6 a.m. June 8 and remain closed until June 13.

Work will take place on Brownsville Road Bridge No. 1.

The project includes completing an epoxy overlay on the bridge deck, which will prevent water and moisture from damaging the bridge; sealing the bridge barriers and sidewalks; and applying pavement markings.

Traffic will be detoured using Clairton Boulevard (Route 51) and Curry Hollow Road, according to the department. Pedestrian access to the bridge’s sidewalks will be limited to 5 p.m. to 7 a.m.

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.
