Work to improve Washington Road (Route 19/3069) in Mt. Lebanon will occur on Saturday, Aug. 31, weather permitting, according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation District 11-0.
Traffic restrictions will occur on Washington between Connor/Gilkeson Road (Route 3038) and Mt. Lebanon Boulevard from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. as crews conduct sidewalk and ramp work.
Lane closures will occur in both directions as needed. Crossovers may occur to allow the work to be completed.
Motorists are advised to use caution and be aware of changing traffic patterns when traveling through the work area. Expect delays and allow extra time.
PennDOT officials remind motorists to use all open lanes to merge points.

As part of this project, work and improvements will also occur on Gilkeson and Connor roads in the area of the Washington Road intersection. Overall work will conclude in early 2014.
