By Submitted Report | Posted in: Announcements

Someone in Port Vue is $2.1 million richer --- minus taxes, of course.

A spokesperson for the Pennsylvania Lottery says the Uni-Mart on Romine Avenue last week sold a lotto ticket that matched all six winning numbers in the March 31 drawing.

The winning ticket, on the lottery's Match 6 game, bears the numbers 10-13-14-26-27-47.

The prize must be claimed and the ticket validated before the winner can be identified, the spokesman said. Match 6 winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

Claims may be filed at the Pennsylvania Lottery headquarters in Middletown, Dauphin County, or at the Pittsburgh regional office on Pittsburgh's North Side at 1424 Western Avenue.

Work Resumes on Lincoln Way; Other PennDOT Projects Announced

March 09, 2016 |

By Submitted Report | Posted in: Announcements

Work will resume later this month on the nearly $7 million project to expand and improve Lincoln Way in White Oak.

The project, expected to be complete in June, is one of $189 million in total improvements to state-owned roads and bridges planned for Allegheny County in 2016, according to the state Department of Transportation.

“We are pleased to be completing some major projects while initiating news ones,” said Dan Cessna, district executive for PennDOT. “We are proud to be delivering much needed infrastructure enhancements to the Pittsburgh region.”

Lincoln Way has been undergoing extensive reconstruction since 2013 under a long-awaited project to widen the road, add left turning lanes, and improve curbs, sidewalks and drainage. A PennDOT spokesman said the project will be wrapping up this spring when new curbs and sidewalks are completed between Henderson Road and Auld Street in the White Oak business district.

About 16,000 vehicles per day use Lincoln Way, according to PennDOT traffic volume maps.

Other projects that will impact Mon-Yough area motorists and bicyclists include the previously announced Phase 3 of improvements to the interchange on the West Homestead side of the Glenwood Bridge. Work began in late February and will include replacement of the bridge deck on northbound Route 837 --- near the Whemco plant --- and four associated ramps at the interchange.
