PennDOT District 11 is announcing roadway improvement work on Route 18 (7th Avenue, 7th Street) in the City of Beaver Falls and New Brighton Borough, Beaver County, will begin Monday, May 6 weather permitting.

Beginning at approximately 7 a.m. on Monday, long-term lane restrictions through late fall will be implemented on Route 18 in both directions between 5th Street (Route 65) in New Brighton and 20th Street in Beaver Falls as crews begin concrete patching, drainage upgrades, and ADA curb cut ramp and sidewalk improvements. Parking will be maintained through the corridor, except in the location where physical work is occurring.

The $6.05 million project will also include patching milling and resurfacing the existing bituminous pavement, guide rail improvements, and signal updates. Additional traffic safety improvements include a “road diet” (from the existing four lanes down to three lanes), curb extensions, bicycle lanes, and revised street parking between 3rd Street and 20th Street in the City of Beaver Falls.

A. Liberoni, Inc. is the prime contractor. The overall project is anticipated to conclude in the spring of 2020.
