Phase II
SR 0088, Section A09 - Library Road
McNEILLY ROAD TO SIXTH/KILLARNEY STREETS
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is in the process of finalizing the preliminary design for the project. The project will improve a portion of Library Road, between McNeilly Road in the City of Pittsburgh and Sixth/Killarney Streets in the Borough of Castle Shannon.

DESCRIPTION:
The purpose of the project is to repair a slide prone portion of Route 88 and also to relieve traffic congestion and improve driver safety and by realigning and reconstruction approximately 1443 feet, 0.27 miles of Route 88. The existing roadway will be reconstructed to accommodate two 12-foot wide through lanes and a 13-foot wide left turn lane at McNeilly Road and Sixth/Killarney Streets. The portions of the roadway between these intersections will be widened to 24 feet to accommodate 2-12 foot through lanes. A 2'-6 concrete curb gutter will be constructed along both sides of the roadway along with a new drainage system to facilitate the removal of storm water from the roadway surface.

In order to stabilize the roadway, the existing hillside will be removed and the mine voids filled. This will allow for the construction of a sound base to construct the new roadway. To do this, we will need to close this section of Library Road. All traffic will be detoured via Route 51 to Route 19 to Connor Road to Route 88.

Construction of the project will require the acquisition and relocation of several residences and also narrow strips of property through the rest of this section.

COSTS: The current estimated cost for this project is $3.3 million

PROJECT SCHEDULE:
Acquisition of Right-of-way - Late Summer 2003
Proposed Construction Schedule to begin after the Section A04 project (between Sixth/Killarney Streets) is complete
Anticipated to Begin - Fall 2006 - Anticipated Finish - Fall 2007
