Traffic delays possible along Bettis Road
Construction began this week on a project to replace approximately 1,000 feet of old sewer lines in Dravosburg, Pennsylvania American Water Co. announced.
The project is expected to continue through the spring.
Gary Lobaugh, a spokesman for the water company, said the 60-year-old sewer line “has a recent history of breaks and reliability issues.”
The water company took over the Dravosburg sewer system with its purchase of the facilities of McKeesport’s municipal sewerage authority in 2017.
Traffic delays are anticipated along Bettis Road in Dravosburg as well as Valleyview Drive, Melrose Place and Ridgeview Drive, Lobaugh said, and crews will work weekdays between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Final restoration and paving will be completed in early spring 2022, Lobaugh said. The work is being done by a contractor. The cost of these system improvements is approximately $315,000, he said.
