Provost Road Between Intersection of Saw Mill Run Boulevard to Close Through End of May 2023

In advance of a significant Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) bridge replacement project on Weyman Road, Columbia Gas and its contractor, NPL Construction Company, will undertake a pipeline relocation project transferring pipe from Weyman Road to Provost Road in Whitehall Borough, Allegheny County.

Road Opening: Provost Road, between the intersection of Weyman Road south to the Fairhaven Beneficial Society, will be opening to local traffic and residents tentatively on May 3, 2023.

Road Closure:  In order to complete the remaining phase of the project in a timely and safe manner, Provost Road will fully close between the Weyman Road intersection with Provost Road, north to Sawmill Run Boulevard (Route 51). This closure will be 24 hours per day, tentatively scheduled to begin on May 3, 2023. Base working hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. but are not limited to that timeframe. The posted detour for local traffic and buses will utilize Saw Mill Run Boulevard (Route 51) and Greenlee Road. The temporary daily road closure should conclude by the end of May 2023 (weather depending).

This daily road closure will allow for safe travel by motorists around the work zone and enhance safety and efficiency for work crews to complete work on Provost Road. Motorists traveling through or near Columbia Gas work zones should exercise extreme caution and be prepared for slowed or temporarily stopped traffic. Motorists should keep a safe distance between vehicles, reduce speed in work zones, and obey flaggers and all posted signs, including detours and parking restrictions. Residents and businesses within the closure area will have access to their homes or businesses at all times.

The patience and cooperation of residents and motorists is appreciated during this important project to maintain safe and reliable natural gas service to homes and businesses in the community.
