PennDOT District 11 is announcing single-lane restrictions in both directions on Route 28 near the structure over Crawford Run Road in East Deer Township, Allegheny County, will begin Monday, September 19 weather permitting.

Single-lane restrictions will occur in both directions on Route 28 beginning Monday morning as crews from Swank Construction Company perform roadway reconstruction and bridge deck rehabilitation according to the following schedule:


  • From 3 a.m. Monday continuously through Monday, October 10
  • Restrictions begin at the Russellton/Creighton (Exit 13) off-ramp extending approximately half a mile north


  • From 9 a.m. Monday continuously through Monday, October 10
  • Restrictions begin half a mile south of the Bailies Run Road on-ramp extending approximately half a mile south

The work is part of the $27.68 million highway restoration project on Route 28 between Harmar/I-76/Route 910 (Exit 11) and Russelton/Creighton (Exit 13) interchanges. Construction will include milling and resurfacing, concrete pavement preservation, bridge rehabilitation and preservation, guide rail and drainage improvements, ITS upgrades, highway lighting, traffic signals, ADA curb ramps installation, signing and pavement marking, and other miscellaneous operations. During much of construction, long-term single-lane restrictions will occur, along with an 11-day single-lane closure in each direction near the northern limits of the project. Work is expected to conclude between the end of 2023 and early 2024.
