A $5.6 million resurfacing project will restrict traffic on Route 19-Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon starting today and continuing through the end of the construction season.
It calls for milling and resurfacing Washington Road from the intersection at Connor and Gilkeson roads to Alfred Street in the heart of the business district. It also will reconfigure the Connor-Gilkeson intersection, adding a second eastbound through lane from Gilkeson to Connor to eliminate a bottleneck. Several traffic signals will be upgraded.
No northbound lanes will be closed from 6 to 9 a.m. weekdays; no southbound restrictions will occur from 3 to 6 p.m. weekdays. Both directions are likely to have restrictions at other times, including from 6 p.m. Fridays through 6 a.m. Mondays.
Completion of the project is expected early next year.
