The long-awaited reconstruction of Bowman Avenue in the city's Highland Grove neighborhood began this week. Above, McKeesport city Administrator Tom Maglicco and Mayor Michael Cherepko visit the construction site.
A spokeswoman said no through traffic is allowed on Bowman Avenue while the work is being done. The posted detour takes motorists inbound to McKeesport from North Versailles Twp. from East Pittsburgh McKeesport Boulevard down Westinghouse Avenue to Fifth Avenue.
Drivers heading toward North Versailles from McKeesport should use Fifth Avenue to Route 30 or Westinghouse Avenue, the spokeswoman said.
Residents of the neighborhood may use Elm Street to access Cronemeyer, Highland and Bowman avenues.

Recent heavy rainstorms are causing concern for residents in the Larimer Street section of North Versailles Twp.
During the public comment portion of Thursday's meeting, resident Mary Henning told township commissioners that water "is shooting out of the sewer system" and that she wasn't satisfied with the results of an earlier discussion she had with the township engineer.
“That’s why I showed up today," she said.
Henning's brother, Donald Rush, said he's helping his sister clear land nearby for possible development. “I’ve been studying this for a year, standing out in the rain just to gather information,” Rush said. “Only when it rains extremely hard and for a long period of time does the basin across the street not handle the water.”
