Borough Construction and Road Updates

2019 Paving Project is complete. Check back here for the 2020 schedule.

Borough council members ask for your patience and understanding during these annual infrastructure improvement projects. It is a short-term price to pay for long-term improvements. 

General  Procedure for Paving Projects

As a courtesy, Ben Avon informs all utilities of upcoming paving projects at least one year in advance.  The goal is to have any repairs or replacements completed prior to repaving the streets.  The utilities save because they do not have to pay for restoration.  The Borough saves in its investment by ensuring that the quality and durability of the new streets will not be compromised with future utility work cuts and patching.  As with any major construction project, this requires patience and understanding as the borough is captive of the utility’s calendar and budget. Sewer integrity inspections must also be conducted prior to any street paving so that any problems found can made prior to paving.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during our neighborhood improvement projects. For Ben Avon specific construction questions you may contact the Ben Avon Public Works department at benavonpw@benavon.com or call 412.761.5311.

Ben Avon Borough office contact information is BenAvon@benavon.com or (412) 766-7704.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON STREETS TO BE PAVED DURING WORK HOURS. Please remove vehicles from the streets between 7am and 5pm, Monday through Friday, until the project is completed.

Route 65 Bridge Preservation Work Begins Monday in Ben Avon

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.

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 benavon@benavon.com.
