PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced the closure of Blackburn Road in Sewickley Heights just west of the Thawmont Drive intersection beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 7. The two-week closure is necessary to conduct emergency repairs on a small culvert.

During the closure, motorists will be able to access the Sewickley Valley Hospital and War Memorial Park by traveling eastbound on Blackburn Road from downtown Sewickley. Thawmont Drive will be accessible to vehicles traveling westbound on Blackburn Road from Sewickley Heights and Ohio Township.

A posted detour will be in place during the closure. For eastbound traffic from Sewickley, proceed east on Beaver Road for approximately one mile, turn left onto Glen Mitchell Road, proceed approximately two miles, and then return to Blackburn Road. Motorists traveling westbound will use the same detour in reverse.
