Traffic Alert - E. Elfinwild Rd. @ Route 8 to Close March 16th

Allegheny County has released a statement that E. Elfinwild Road will close near its intersection with William Flinn Hwy. (Route 8) in Shaler Township starting at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, March 16th. The closure, which is expected to last until December 2020, is required for reconstruction of the structurally deficient Pine Creek Bridge No. 9.  

The work includes new bridge abutments, superstructure, retaining wall, concrete barrier, drainage, guide rail, pavement, sidewalk, curb ADA ramps, and guide rail as well as high-friction surface treatment, seeding and mulching.

There will be three posted detours for this project:

  • East Elfinwild Road traffic will be detoured using Middle Road, Burchfield Road, and William Flinn Highway (Route 8).
  • During construction, the left-turn lane used by William Flinn Highway (Route 8) southbound traffic to turn onto E. Elfinwild Road will be closed.  Thus, William Flinn Highway southbound traffic wanting to reach the businesses located at the closure site will be detoured using Eighth Avenue, Edison Street, Duquesne Street, and William Flinn Highway northbound.
  • Drivers exiting the businesses at the closure site and wanting to go southbound on William Flinn Highway will be detoured using William Flinn Highway northbound, Duncan Avenue, Mount Royal Boulevard, and Elfinwild Road.

The $2.1 million project is being done by Pugliano Construction Co. Inc. of Pittsburgh
