Work crews will be active from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays during that time period.
The Allegheny County Department of Public Works, in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 11-0, is overseeing the $8.6-million project to improve the busy Brownsville-Curry Hollow-Broughton intersection on the borders of South Park Township and Baldwin and Pleasant Hills boroughs.
Motorists should use caution and watch for additional changing traffic patterns as asphalt crews begin paving the Brownsville-5th Street and Brownsville-6th Street intersections from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. each day from May 13 through May 17.
The $8.6-million Brownsville-Broughton-Curry Hollow Project includes intersection realignment, reconstruction, widening, bituminous paving, concrete installation, and reconstruction and extension of a concrete arch culvert, as well as improvements to drainage, curbs, sidewalks, traffic signals and more.
Overall work—originally scheduled for completion in the spring of 2013—will conclude in the fall of 2013, according to press releases from the county public works department. The prime contractor is Frank J. Zottola Construction, Inc., of Valencia, PA.
