Line painting planned for next year as part of Oakmont’s pedestrian safety improvements

About an hour ago

An Oakmont pedestrian safety project, inspired by a traffic study and a borough Girl Scout, is planned for next year.

Borough officials earmarked $40,000 in the 2021 budget for line painting for crosswalks along Allegheny River Boulevard and Allegheny Avenue.

It is unclear how much painting could be done with that amount of money.

The decision to improve the crosswalks was done after reviewing a traffic study by Wooster and Associates of Pittsburgh and a report from resident Audrey Myers, a ninth-grader at Riverview High School.

“I think she inspired us to move forward on it, and she has given us a wonderful tool to work with,” Councilwoman Nancy Ride said. “We’re able to use it rather than doing our research with our own staff, and we

Renovation Planned For Historic Rocca Building

Jamestown, CA — The Tuolumne County Historic Preservation Review Commission will hold a public hearing about a project planned in downtown Jamestown.

Renovation planned for Merrillville dealership | Lake County News



Welcome to Merrillville



MERRILLVILLE — The town’s north end is expected to be enhanced as Shaver Preferred Motors is planning to invest more than $1 million in renovations to the dealership.

Shaver has been located at 5701 Broadway for decades, and it intends to expand into the former Levin Tire property that’s adjacent to the dealership.

“They’re really doing it to spruce up the business and make it look nice in the town and I think we should welcome it,” Town Council President Rick Bella said.

The project calls for improvements to the former tire business to convert it into an indoor showroom and sales office for the dealership. Shaver’s existing sales office is much smaller than the former Levin building, and it will be demolished.

Shaver is asking the town to grant a 10-year real estate property tax abatement for the improvements that will be completed.

According to a release, SCDOT approached the City of Columbia in mid-2019 about improving the safety of the street. The result is an alternative striping plan that includes adding turn lanes, bike lanes and other safety improvements. 

Phase One began in May 2020 with repairs along the Avenue starting at Gervais Street, and continuing southwest towards Gladden Street. Phase Two will occur in the future from Gladden Street to Devine Street. 

The planned improvements will create a more effective, standardized lane width throughout the corridor, according to the city. The proposed lane   configuration does not reduce travel lanes and no changes to the overall width of the road are proposed.

During the project, bike lanes from Gervais to Devine will be created. No loss of on-street parking will occur, except
