McDowell Trail closed at Dorothy Lane Aug. 7

The Richard E. McDowell Trail will be closed Aug. 7 at its Dorothy Lane crossing due to construction.


            The remainder of the trail will be open. The trail is scheduled to reopen early in the evening of Aug. 7.


            Campus Drive is also closed at Dorothy Lane due to the construction.


            The $3 million Dorothy Lane project by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will replace the bridge across the Tunungwant Creek. A detour is in place to direct traffic around the bridge. Vehicles can access University of Pittsburgh at Bradford campus at its westernmost entrance from West Washington Street.


            In addition to replacing the bridge, the project will repave the area, upgrade guiderails, remark paving, widen the road and put in sidewalks.
