Traffic/Road updates

Monitor Avenue Closed Until Further Notice

Ben Avon Public Works Department, with PennDOT approval, has closed Monitor Ave to thru traffic due to the increased public safety hazard from a sink hole at the ORB end of the street. Ben Avon Public Works, PennDOT and West View Water are working together to remedy the issue and repair damages to the road.
Right now Monitor is closed to all through traffic as is the right lane of Ohio River Blvd Northbound. Local residents will be able to use Monitor as a 2-way street to get in and out via Brighton Rd. until repairs are complete. We will update when we have further information.

Avon Park to close shortly for gas line repairs

Avon Park will be closed shortly as the Buckeye Pipe Line Company will be reseating the gas line that runs through the park.  There is no definite start time as of yet but work is expected to start this summer and run several weeks at least.  Ben Avon will keep residents updated as to the progress.

Kilbuck Township's Perrysville Ave Project

Thank you for your patience as Kilbuck Township's Perrysville Ave. construction project continues near Wilson. At this time we do not have any updates as to expected completion. As soon as we get more details we will be sure to share them.  Best advice is to find an alternate route, especially during peak traffic times.  Thank you for your continued patience.

General Utility work background

Utilities prefer laying new main line under the sidewalk versus the road as restoration is less expensive both now and in the future: in addition to being less disruptive to traffic. When laying new line under a sidewalk, they keep half of the sidewalk during construction to allow for some form of temporary walkway through the site during the time between project completion and when a new sidewalk is installed. When the new sidewalk is installed, they remove the other half of the concrete and will replace the full width of the sidewalk.

Ben Avon Department of Public Works Expected Road Projects for 2018


Below are the anticipated road projects that will be taking place during the summer of 2018. Plans are in place for utility work with Columbia Gas and West View Water as well as sewer inspections and repairs/replacements as necessary.
Upon completion of all utility work, street repaving is anticipated over the next four months, through September.  Please be advised that most of these projects are dependent upon the Gas and Water Authority's schedules and all timelines are tentative until actually completed. Please contact Ben Avon Borough at or (412) 766-7704 with any questions or comments. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we work to improve your neighborhood.
