​​Part of Wilkins Avenue to Close Starting on September 21

PITTSBURGH – The Department of Public Works announced today that Wilkins Avenue will close between Cross Street and Garfield Avenue in Braddock Hills starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, September 21, 2023. The closure, which is expected to end in November, is required for construction of a roadway support structure.

Traffic will be detoured using Brinton Road, Yost Boulevard, Sixth Street, Braddock Avenue, Kenmawr Avenue, Talbot Avenue, South Braddock Avenue, and Woodstock Avenue. Residents living within and near the closure area will have access to their homes at all times.

The work will be done by Mele & Mele & Sons, Inc., of Rankin as part of a $7.6 million 2023 Capital Roads contract.

During the closure, previously announced work on Wilkins Avenue between Brinton Road and Woodstock Avenue/Hawkins Avenue will continue. That work, including milling and paving, base repairs, drainage improvements, shoulder work, and guide rail replacement, requires periodic single-lane closures. Flaggers are being used to control traffic at work zones.
