Boyce Road in South Fayette will be closed three days this week while construction crews replace a 60-year-old water pipeline.
The busy road will be closed beginning at 7 a.m. Wednesday and probably won’t reopen until Friday.
Pennsylvania American Water, which is overseeing the work, announced the road will be closed between Lawn Shadow and Summit Ridge drives.
There are posted detours in the areas around Mayview Road and Washington Pike to alert motorists of alternate routes.
“This project will address a recent history of breaks and service interruptions caused by this aging main,” PAWC Operations Superintendent Greg Hlasnick said in a press release. “The investment will improve reliability and flows for firefighting.”
The $70,000 project will support maintenance on a section of the water main that was originally installed in the early 1950s, PAWC officials said.
