The Department of Public Works announced today that the start of a closure on part of the 1800 block of Painters Run Road in Scott Township has been delayed. The closure will now begin at 7 a.m. on Monday, July 20, 2020, and is expected to last at least one week. It is necessary for work on Painters Run Bridge No. 9, including repairs to the bridge deck, installation of guide rail, and paving. The change in start date is due to a delay in the completion of nearby utility work.

When the closure begins, traffic will be detoured using Bower Hill Road, Kelso Road and Rob Hollow Road.

The work 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.
