Bridgeville borough council voted 6-1, with Councilman William Colussy dissenting, at its meeting Monday to accept a settlement with Bedner Farms Estates, which had filed a lawsuit against the borough in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, asking the court to require Bridgeville to grant access to Main Street and to allow the developer to tap into Bridgeville's sanitary sewer line serving Main Street.

The decision clears the way for the developer to open a direct access point from Main Street in Bridgeville to the 136-unit housing development planned for the site of the former Bedner farm in Upper St. Clair. Currently, there is an unpaved 10-foot section separating the former Bedner farm from Main Street.

Phil Sbrolla, an attorney retained by the borough's insurance carrier, said an ordinance passed by Bridgeville council between 1948 and 1951 permitted the opening of Main Street to Upper St. Clair.
