A portion of road is being shut down in Glen Osborne as part of the sewer interconnect project.
Beaver Road in Glen Osborne will be shut down for about three weeks starting on Wednesday, Nov. 28. The shut down will occur from Ohio River Boulevard to Sycamore Road and last until approximately Dec. 19. Sewickley police Capt. Rich Manko said no traffic, including school buses and fire trucks, will be permitted to travel through the area during this time. The road is being closed as part of the sewer interconnect project.
