Short traffic stoppages and temporary closures will occur on Thoms Run Road in Collier, just outside the South Fayette border. Work had been interrupted due to COVID-19 but will resume at 7 a.m. Fri. May 1 under the state health department’s strict safety measures.

During paving and repairs, short traffic stoppages, with assistance from flaggers, will occur from Forsythe Road to 600 feet west of Dutch Hill Road, according to Allegheny County.

The work had begun in March, but contractor Northeast Paving had shut down its in-person operations in compliance with Gov. Tom Wolf’s order that all non-life-sustaining businesses close their physical locations to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Starting May 1, the construction industry in Pennsylvania is permitted to conduct in-person operations if they strictly adhere to the safety measures issued by state Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine.


Later this year, additional work on these sections of road will require closures. Allegheny County Public Works will announce the exact start dates.



Short traffic stoppages and temporary closures will occur on Thoms Run Road in Collier, just outside the South Fayette border, from 7 a.m. Mon. March 16, 2020, until October 2020 due to road work.

During paving and repairs, short traffic stoppages, with assistance from flaggers, will occur from Forsythe Road to 600 feet west of Dutch Hill Road, according to Allegheny County.

Here are three closures that will occur during the project:

•    Starting in June, Thoms Run Road will be closed just west of its intersection with Forsythe Road for a bridge replacement. Traffic will be detoured using Prestley Road, Washington Avenue (Route 50), Millers Run Road (Route 50) and Presto-Sygan Road.
 
The closures are not expected to overlap. Exact start dates for the closures will be announced later.
