Part of Painters Run Road in Scott to Close July 15
PITTSBURGH – The Department of Public Works announced today that part of the 1800 block of Painters Run Road in Scott Township will close starting at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The closure, which is expected to last at least one week, is required for preservation of Painters Run Bridge No. 9. That work includes repairs to the bridge deck, installation of guide rail, and paving.
Traffic will be detoured (click HERE for detour map) using Bower Hill Road, Kelso Road and Rob Hollow Road.
The closure is part of an ongoing project on Painters Run Road that also requires short stoppages in work zones between Bower Hill Road in Scott Township and Cedar Boulevard in Mt. Lebanon. Those stoppages, which are expected to end in November 2020, are needed for structural repairs to Painters Run Bridge No. 3, roadway drainage and base repairs, guide rail installation, as well as milling and paving.
The project is being done by Northeast Paving, a division of Eurovia Atlantic Coast, LLC, of Pittsburgh, as part of the $10.7 million 2019 Capital Roads contract.
