Fort Couch Road Construction to Begin July 9

The Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced periodic single-lane closures on Fort Couch Road between Washington Road (Route 19) in Upper St. Clair and Bethel Church Road in Bethel Park will begin at 6 a.m. on Friday, July 9, 2021. The restrictions, which will occur between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on weekdays, are expected to last about one month.

Construction crews will be performing base repairs, milling and paving, drainage and shoulder improvements, and replacement of guide rail and pavement markings.  Drivers can expect to experience short stoppages in work zones. Flaggers will be used to control traffic. 

The work will be done by A. Folino Construction, Inc. of Oakmont as part of the $3.9 million 2021 Capital Road contract with Allegheny County.

Construction will also continue along Route 19/Washington Road.
