Boyer Road Closing Monday in Westmoreland County


Uniontown, PA – Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 12 is announcing that Boyer Road between Route 2007 (Hecla Road) and Route 981 (Mount Pleasant Calumet Road) is scheduled to close on Monday, April 22, 7:00 AM, in Mount Pleasant Township, Westmoreland County. 

A posted detour will be in place using Route 2007 (Hecla Road) and Route 981 (Mount Pleasant Calumet Road) and is anticipated until mid-May depending on weather and operations. 

Crews from Walsh Construction Company will be overlaying existing asphalt on Boyer Road. 

This work is part of the $55.2 million Laurel Valley Transportation Improvement Project to upgrade the Route 981 corridor from the intersection with Route 819 in Mount Pleasant Township to the intersection with Route 30 in Unity Township and is broken into three separate projects. The southernmost section will involve reconstruction of Route 981 from the intersection with Route 819 north to a point just south of the town of Calumet. The project is expected to be complete in September 2024.
