Clever Road Single-lane Restriction Monday, Tuesday in Allegheny County


​Pittsburgh, PA – PennDOT District 11 is announcing a single-lane restriction on Clever Road in Robinson and Kennedy townships, Allegheny County will begin on Monday, March 20 weather permitting.

A single-lane restriction with flagging operations on Clever Road between Aiken Road Extension and Pitchfork Drive will occur from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. Crews from Lindy Paving, Inc. will remove guide rail, shift traffic, and install barrier along the shoulder to accommodate overhead structure work on I-79.

Once barrier is placed, one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction with shoulders closed between Aiken Road Extension and Pitchfork Drive 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.
