Route 88 Library Road Overnight Lane Restrictions Underway in Allegheny County


Pittsburgh, PA – PennDOT District 11 is announcing overnight lane restrictions are underway on Route 88 (Library Road) in South Park Township and the Municipality of Bethel Park, Allegheny County.

Single-lane alternating traffic will occur weeknights from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. through the spring of 2020 on Route 88 between Churchill Road and Clifton Road. Additionally, shoulder restrictions will occur on Route 88 weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to allow widening work and drainage improvements to occur.

The work is part of the $4.37 million Route 88 improvement project which includes the widening of Route 88, replacement of two stone arch bridges, and the addition of left turning lanes at the Clifton Road (Route 3004) and Churchill Road (Route 3022) intersections. Other work includes the addition of a right turning lane from Clifton Road to southbound Route 88, drainage updates, signal improvements, guide rail upgrades, and pavement marking installation.

Additional information will be provided prior to the next phase of work.

C.H & D. Enterprises, Inc. is the prime contractor. The overall project is expected to conclude in December 2020.
