Not so fast: Logans Ferry Road won't reopen on Friday
The reopening of Logans Ferry Road in Plum has been delayed for a second time.
The heavily traveled road will not be reopening today as had been announced earlier this week because of a delay in paving, Jeff Rossi, a spokesman with Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners, said Thursday.
Its reopening is now projected for by the end of next week, Dec. 8, Rossi said.
Project representatives had initially hoped to reopen the road before Thanksgiving.
Rossi noted that a reopening next week would still be ahead of schedule.
By contract, the work is supposed to be done by Dec. 15.
Logans Ferry has been closed near Entrance Drive since Oct. 2 for a project under the state's Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.
A bridge spanning a defunct railroad spur has been removed, and the gap filled-in. Work has also included drainage improvements.
Traffic has endured an eight-mile detour. An estimated 12,000 vehicles travel the road daily, according to PennDOT.
The road is a key link between New Kensington and Oakmont.
