Pisciottano, PennDOT tour road issues impacting local communities
DRAVOSBURG, Aug. 5 – State Rep. Nick Pisciottano joined state Transportation Department District 11 Director Cheryl Moon-Sirianni and Senior Highway Maintenance Manager Lori Musto today to discuss infrastructure in the 38th Legislative District.
“This tour is one of the ways I can bring the concerns of my constituents and local elected officials to PennDOT’s attention,” said Pisciottano, D-Allegheny. “My office works collaboratively with PennDOT to address infrastructure issues every day. By conducting this tour, I can show PennDOT firsthand the issues we experience including buckling roads, dangerous flood areas, unsafe traffic patterns and more. Together, we can work with residents and local municipalities to improve our roads, bridges, and waterways.”
Pisciottano, Sirianni and Musto discussed the impact of the Mon-Fayette Expressway project on local traffic, reviewed specific issues faced by each community in the 38th District, and visited the following areas in-person:
- River Road in Port Vue.
- Washington Avenue in Dravosburg.
- Clairton Road/Route 51 in Pleasant Hills.
- Lebanon Church Road and PA-885 in West Mifflin.
- Streets Run Road in Baldwin.
Pisciottano reminds people to contact his office if they have any issues with state-owned roads, bridges or waterways.
