Buckle up, east-suburb commuters: it’s almost construction season on the Parkway East.
Prep work on a $2.34 million dollar project begins this week, with single-lane restrictions in both directions at locations between the Edgewood/Swissvale (Exit 77) and Pennsylvania Turnpike/Monroeville exits from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Prep work will continue through July 6, according to PennDOT officials.
Crews will be performing sign installation, station marking and traffic-control device delivery.
Construction is set to start July 9 and will include milling resurfacing center-line and edge-line joints. Work is expected to last through mid-October.
PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said about 90,000 vehicles per day utilize the Parkway East.
