Single Lane, Alternating Traffic Begins August 12 on Broughton & Horning Roads

PITTSBURGH – The Allegheny County Department of Public Works today announced new traffic patterns at the intersection of Broughton and Horning Roads as part of the Brownsville Road and Broughton Road Realignment Project.

Beginning Monday, August 12, at 7:00 a.m., Broughton and Horning Roads will be reduced to single lane, alternating traffic. The operation will be in effect 24 hours a day until Wednesday, August 14 at 11:00 p.m. South Park Police and flaggers will direct traffic on both roads. Temporary lighting will be installed over the affected roadways. The closure is necessary to complete the reconstruction of the Horning/Broughton Road intersection with new paving and widening for the new turning lanes.

The Brownsville/Broughton Realignment 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.
