Public Works Announces New Traffic Patterns on Brownsville Road in Baldwin Borough & South Park Twp.

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced a new traffic pattern on Brownsville Road affecting the southbound lane from the intersection of Curry Hollow Road to Cochrans Mill Road. This is part of the Brownsville/Broughton Intersection Project. 

From 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, July 15, and Tuesday, July 16, traffic control devices will be removed and southbound traffic will be guided on to the new southbound lane alignment of Brownsville Road. Baldwin Borough and South Park Twp. police, with the aid of flaggers, will oversee the changeover of traffic. Motorists in both northbound and southbound lanes should use caution, watch for changing traffic patterns, and expect temporary traffic stoppages during this time.  

The Brownsville/Broughton Intersection Project is in cooperation with PennDOT District 11 and includes mine grouting, intersection realignment, road reconstruction and lane widening, as well as reconstruction and extension of a concrete arch culvert. Improvements to drainage, curbs, sidewalks and traffic signals are also being made. Overall work will conclude this fall. The prime contractor is Frank J. Zottola Construction Inc. of Valencia, Pa. Additional information about the project is available online at www.alleghenycounty.us/publicworks/brownsville.aspx.
