Route 51 To Be Reduced To Single Lane Wednesday

Saw Mill Run Boulevard (Route 51) northbound will be limited to a single lane between Stewart Avenue and Fairhaven Road on Wednesday, August 19, for paving, PennDOT announced. Lane limitation and paving will happen if the weather cooperates.

No restrictions will occur in the southbound direction.

On an average day, about 42,000 vehicles use Route 51, which is undergoing major reconstruction at the intersection with Route 88 (Library Road) in Overbrook. Reconstruction has closed Route 88 (Library Road) northbound at the intersection with Route 51. The overall project includes replacing bridges, constructing a new bridge, updating turning lanes, roadway reconstruction, moving utilities, upgrading traffic signal, lighting, improvements to sidewalks and drainage, installation of CCTV cameras and restoring stream banks.
