Project Description:
The $18.1 million Route 19 Wexford Flats Improvement Project in Pine and McCandless townships, Allegheny County, includes widening, bituminous resurfacing, concrete pavement, drainage, curb and sidewalk, signing and pavement marking, signals, a retaining wall, and other improvements on 2.33 miles of Route 19 from about 300 feet north of Longvue Road (near top of Pine Creek Hill) to just north of North Chapel/Manor Road. The safety and congestion improvement project will widen Route 19 from 42 feet to 63 feet adding a center turn lane, curbed gutters and sidewalks. New, improved traffic signals will be added at eight intersections in the project area. Overall work will conclude in late 2012. About 28,000 vehicles use this section of Route 19 on an average day.

PennDOT‘s prime contractor for the project is the Golden Triangle Construction Company, Inc. of Imperial, PA.
