Long-Term Closure On Streets Run Road In Effect

BALDWIN BOROUGH (KDKA) – Get ready for detours and headaches in Baldwin Borough.

Streets Run Road will be closed for more than a month between Missionary and Springdale drives.

PennDOT’s Steve Cowan said this will affect about 7,800 motorists a day.

“It’s just a short stretch of roadway that is actually sliding away. It’s a major project. We are actually building a wall to support the hillside so they can rebuild the road,” Cowan said.

Detours are posted, but it appears most will be taking Route 885 throughout the construction. Mary Ann Garofalo of Pleasant Hills had the right idea.

“Well, I took a dry run because every Thursday I take my husband down to the VA. So, I wanted to make sure I’m not stuck,” she said.

To make getting from Point A to Point B even more tedious in Baldwin, there’s more construction just up the road.

Schuette Road is closed between Streets Run and Willett roads.

Two retaining walls along that stretch collapsed during recent flash flooding. That section could be closed for a few more weeks.

As for Streets Run Road, the stretch of road will remain closed to traffic continuously through Monday, July 31.

So, PennDOT says be patient, courteous and give yourself a little extra time to get to where you are going.
