The detours and lane closures that have been a fixture along Washington Avenue for the past three months should be gone by early August, according to PennDOT.
Tomorrow evening (May 2), PennDOT contractors are scheduled to start prepping the road for resurfacing. The entire project should conclude by August, according to a Department of Transportation press release:
Single-lane alternating traffic will occur on Route 50 between Station Street and Chartiers Street from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weeknights through mid-July. Weekend work may occur.
Crews from the Lane Construction Corporation will conduct milling and resurfacing operations, base and shoulder repair work, drainage improvements and other miscellaneous construction activities. The overall project will conclude in early August.
Motorists should expect delays. Please use caution when driving through the area. Work zone safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Washington Avenue has been under construction since February, when water company workers began upgrading a water main that runs nearly the entire length of Washington Avenue in Bridgeville. The borough used that job as an opportunity to perform sewer repairs along the same route.
In addition to PennDOT’s weekday evening and night resurfacing work, the agency is expected to use weekends for concrete work.
