A portion of Elizabeth Street in Dravosburg will be closed April 5, the Allegheny County Department of Public Works has announced.
The closure is necessary so that crews can repair damage to a support wall and a guide rail caused by a car crash that occurred in November.
Elizabeth Street connects Route 837 to Maple Avenue. Traffic will be detoured using Curry Hollow Road, Route 837 and McClure Street.
The work is scheduled to be complete in May. The $40,284 project is being done under a contract awarded to Pugliano Construction Co., Inc., of Plum.
