2019 Paving Project begins Monday, Nov. 4

Beginning Monday, November 4, Ben Avon’s 2019 paving project will begin on the following streets:

  • Hilands Avenue.
  • Monitor Avenue – the entire length including across 65 to the dead end.
  • Forest Avenue – between Church Avenue and Brighton Road.
  • Brighton Road – from the Avalon border, near the mini-mart, down to Park Ave.

Borough council members ask for your patience and understanding with further inconvenience, noise, and mess. It is a short-term price to pay for long-term improvements. The contractor is Mele and Mele. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please call the project manager, Frank Schweinberg at (412) 812-4762.

Emergency responders are aware of this project and will be at your service as usual. In addition Waste Management will be given accommodations so as not to interrupt garbage or recycling schedules.

Please take special care to avoid driving on any newly paved street until all construction signage is removed and the street is officially open for use. To be most durable, fresh pavement must be allowed to cool and thoroughly cure; driving on it before then will cause damage and waste your tax dollars.

It is important to understand that unforeseen problems sometimes upset the best of plans, and we ask in advance for your patience, understanding, and compliance. Thank you so much.
