South Fayette Township will spend about $1 million to repair and improve more than 11 miles of roadway this summer. All 70-plus miles of township-owned roads were assessed, classified, prioritized and rated as part of a comprehensive, third-party study last year.
Road improvements, performed in large part by contractor Victor Paving, are set for the following roads: Alpine, Bowman, Boys Home, Cecil Reissing, Cecil Sturgeon, Hickory Grade, Highland Creek, Magnolia, McVey, McVey Ext., Old Oakdale, Ridge and Sygan.
Associated storm inlet work will begin first, on June 27, at the Route 50 end of Hickory Grade. Most of the storm inlet work will occur on the road edge, except for two road crossings on Hickory Grade adjacent to Longview Circle.
Storm inlet work will occur later on Alpine, Highland Creek and Old Oakdale.
Storm inlet subcontractor Lawson Excavating will notify property owners when they are working in their area. As part of the project, some street, sidewalk, driveway and/or yard may be affected. All disturbed areas will be completely reconstructed. Depending on weather, storm inlet work will occur from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
