A long-term single-lane restriction in each direction will begin at 9 a.m. Monday morning on the Route 65 bridge located between Laurel Road and Dickson Avenue. Two 11-foot wide lanes will be maintained for bi-direction traffic on the northbound side of the bridge during the initial phase. Single-lane restrictions will remain in place through early December.
Improvements on the $4.60 million preservation project include superstructure concrete repairs, floor beam repair, crack sealing, and drainage system upgrades.
Motorists should be prepared for changing traffic patterns. Please use caution when driving through the area. Work zone safety is everyone’s responsibility.
Avon Park Update
Most of the park restoration has been completed and the Park is currently OPEN to residents. A few things to remain mindful of include:
- The grass has been reseeded so please be careful of the netting holding in the grass seeds. Please do your best to steer clear of the netting and the hay until the grass has grown in.
- The parking lot is slated to be repaved but there is no definitive timeline. The park is still usable until this takes place. It should only take a couple of days to pave.
- Several other minor repairs are still in the works (including water fountain repair) but will not impede playground usage.
Please stay tuned for updates as they become available and know that getting the park reopened is a top priority. Ben Avon appreciates your patience through all of this work. If you have any questions, please contact the Borough office at (412) 766-7704 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
