PennDOT District 11 is announcing long-term lane restrictions on the Route 2048 (William Penn Highway/Business 22) Hall Station Bridge in in Wilkins Township and the Municipality of Monroeville, Allegheny County will begin Saturday, August 12 weather permitting.
Long-term single-lane restrictions in both directions will occur on the Hall Station Bridge, which carries William Penn Highway over Thompson Run Road. The work will begin at approximately 12:01 a.m. on Saturday. The restrictions will remain in place around-the-clock through mid-November as crews conduct structure improvement work.
The sidewalks on the bridge will close to pedestrian traffic during the bridge work. A temporary pedestrian shuttle will provide service from 6:00 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day. The pedestrian stops will be located in the following locations:
- The intersection of William Penn Highway and Home Depot.
- The intersection of William Penn Highway and Sam’s Club Drive.
Pickup times at the designated shuttle stops will not exceed 30-minute cycles.
Work on this $23.84 million William Penn Highway (Business Route 22) preservation and rehabilitation project began in March in Wilkins Township, Churchill Borough, and the Municipality of Monroeville between Huntingdon Drive and Mosside Boulevard. While crews conduct milling and resurfacing, base repairs, curbing, sidewalk, drainage, guide rail, signing, and pavement markings, motorists can expect single-lane closures. Later this year, motorists can expect a crossover implemented between Rodi Road and the Hall Station Bridge for preservation work. Additionally, in 2024 a full closure of the ramp to Monroeville Mall and detour is anticipated for rehabilitation work. Overall work will conclude in the fall of 2024.
Please use caution in the area.
Crews from Golden Triangle Construction will conduct the work.
