Old Lebanon Church Road in the Borough of Pleasant Hills will Re-Open to the public Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at 5:00PM from the intersection of Mountain View Drive and Regis Avenue, to Clairton Boulevard.
The Borough of Pleasant Hills is pleased to announce that Old Lebanon Church Road will Re-Open Wednesday, November 22, 2017 @ 5:00PM to normal traffic flow. Plavchak Construction sent out a press release Monday, indicating that the road will be re-opening.
That being said, the Borough wants to provide an update on work progress in this letter to the residents affected by the construction. The Borough has worked diligently over the past year attempting to minimize the inconvenience to our residents as much as possible for this PaDEP mandated project acknowledging that sanitary sewer installation work is by its very nature is a disruptive public infrastructure need.
Considering the upcoming holiday season, one such example is a compromise last week with regard to a concern that was brought to our attention. That concern was the Christmas light display that occurs every year on Glenburn and Orchard Drives.
The contractor will be moving off Orchard and over to the small section between Sunrise and Old Lebanon Church Road, the small section of roadway will be closed while they are working in that area. Moving the work site over to Glenburn alleviates the residents’ concerns about their Christmas light displays on upper Glenburn and Orchard Drives.
While this is not ideal, it’s a compromise that achieves two objectives, keep the work progressing and addressing the concerns of our residents. A detour will be in place while this work is occurring. After completion of the work on Glenburn, Plavchak Construction will move back to Orchard Drive and complete the work that has already been started. Work in the Orchard Drive easement will continue to progress.
Finally the contractor will open the short section that is closed for the Illumination Night Celebration as to accommodate the trolley giving the tour of the light display. The Borough has granted the contractor an extension to complete the work by late spring of 2018. The Borough appreciates the patience that the residents have shown throughout this project.
Any questions, please feel free to contact me.
