Nearly two miles of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail on the North Shore will be off-limits from Monday through Friday next week during a construction project.
Friends of the Riverfront announced that the project will occur on the crushed limestone section along the Allegheny River, from 600 River Ave. to the Three Rivers Rowing Club Boathouse in Millvale. The work includes correcting drainage problems, elevating the trail and resurfacing it with reclaimed asphalt and sealant. Trailhead parking lots along River Avenue also will be closed.
A reminder to check earlier posts for much more about upcoming road work, including Squirrel Hill Tunnel closures.
A major reconstruction project starts Monday on Route 65 from Locust Street in Avalon to Hiland Avenue in Emsworth. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in both directions around the clock through November.
Washington Road-Route 19 work continues this weekend in Mt. Lebanon, with single-lane traffic in both directions between Connor-Gilkeson roads and Alfred Street from 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday.
Line painting is scheduled on the Parkway North from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Monday and Wednesday. If you see a paint truck, slow down and stay well back unless specks and spatters of white paint would be the perfect accent for your car’s color scheme.
The merge point where the two-lane ramp from the northbound Veterans Bridge to the outbound Parkway North goes to just one lane has been shifted. Traffic must merge sooner, near the Route 28 off-ramp on the bridge. This will accommodate crews who are replacing bearing pedestrals on the ramp. Work occurs from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through May 30, and the contractor may squeeze in some night work after 8 p.m.
