PennDOT District 11 is announcing the implementation of a height restriction on Route 51 (Coraopolis Road) is underway in Robinson Township, Allegheny County.

Paint containment installation is occurring on the I-79 bridge over Route 51. To allow the paint operations to occur, a 13-foot, 6-inch height restriction has been implemented on Route 51 in both directions under I-79. The height restriction will remain in place around-the-clock through mid-November.

This work is part of the $43.9 million I-79 “S-Bend” Project that includes full-depth pavement reconstruction, bridge preservation work on five mainline structures (I-79 northbound and southbound over Clever Road, I-79 northbound and southbound over Route 51, and the Neville Island Bridge). Additionally, there will be milling and paving of three ramps at the Route 51 (Coraopolis/McKees Rocks) interchange. The project also includes guiderail replacement, highway lighting and signing upgrades, new pavement markings and delineation, and other miscellaneous construction work.

Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.
