A water main replacement could cause some nighttime traffic delays on Washington Avenue in Bridgeville for the next few months.
The project begins this week and could last through May 1, according the Bridgeville Police Department. Work will take place from 8 p.m to 6 a.m. Monday evenings through Friday mornings. The current work schedule looks like this (weather permitting):
The project will begin at the intersection of Washington Avenue and Chartiers Street. It will end on the other end of town at Washington Avenue and St. Clair Street.
Police chief Chad King said:
Washington Avenue will have alternating lanes of travel with, at times, partial and total shutdowns. Detour routes will be used in the event of a shutdown and it may include your street. More than likely, the streets to be affected are as follows: Hickman, Chess, Station, Gilbert, Murray, Bower Hill, and Railroad. In the event of a shutdown, parking restrictions will be implemented. We will make every effort to ensure that 24-48 hrs. notice is given when the parking restrictions are going to be needed.
While Pennsylvania-American Water Company contractors are replacing the water main, the borough will use this as an opportunity to perform mandatory sewer repairs along Washington Avenue.
