O'Neil Boulevard will be closed near Founders Hall Middle School for most of June and July as crews work to stabilize part of the hillside.
A spokesperson for the Allegheny County Department of Public Works said the closure begins at 9 a.m. June 13 (Monday) at Porter Street, when construction workers from Pugliano Construction of Plum will begin reconstructing the hillside. The project has an estimated cost of $300,000.
The work will continue through the end of July. The official detour will take motorists over Eden Park Boulevard, Walnut Street, 30th Avenue and Patterson Avenue.
