*UPDATE* – Effective July 11th, the roadway project on Painters Run Road in Upper St. Clair has been completed and the road has reopened. All detours have been discontinued.
TRAFFIC ALERT – As a result of the Painter’s Run Road project, combined with temporary road closures in Scott Twp., there is now an issue with traffic backing up on Kelso Road, especially during morning and afternoon rush hours.
In an attempt to keep traffic flowing, a MLPD officer will manually control the traffic signal located at the intersection of Bower Hill Rd and Kelso Rd from 6:00am-10:00am & 3:00pm-7:00pm, Monday–Friday.
Also, in order to prevent high volumes of vehicles from becoming gridlocked on adjacent residential streets, temporary “No Left Turn” signs have been placed on Kelso Rd at the intersections with Bethany and Pembroke.
These measures will be in place until the end of construction project on Painters Run, which at this point is anticipated to be July 22nd.
