Brick restoration to begin along Allegheny River Boulevard in Oakmont
Allegheny River Boulevard in Oakmont between Terrace Place and Virginia Avenue is expected to be closed late next month as part of a brick repair project.
Council awarded the nearly $197,800 job to Apollo-based Kishmo Concrete Contractors at a meeting June 17.
“They’ve done previous work for us, and they do a good job,” Councilman Tim Favo said.
Kishmo, the lowest of four bidders, is expected to begin within the next 30 days. The project may take a few weeks, weather permitting.
Favo said council selects sections of the boulevard for repair based on necessity and not simply a straight line.
“We’re not going in a linear sequence,” Favo said. “We’re going by need. We’re getting a lot of it done.”
It will be the third such brick restoration project along the borough’s business district within the past two years.
Pampena Landscaping and Construction Inc. repaired the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Allegheny River Boulevard, and crews from Baiano Construction of Baldwin restored the brick road from the Oakmont Deli to the southern side of Washington Avenue last year.
More information will be posted on the borough’s website, www.oakmontborough.com.
