Streetscape Project Through Carnegie, Glendale and Heidelberg Beginning

The multi-million dollar streetscape project that will snake from Carnegie through Glendale and into Heidelberg is finally beginning after years of planning and delays.

The multi-million dollar streetscape project that will snake from Carnegie through Glendale and into Heidelberg is finally beginning after years of planning and delays.

Federal, state and local leaders earlier this month celebrated the launch of the Tri-Community Streetscape Project that is officially set to begin in January.

The work will rebuild the sidewalks and roads while upgrading lighting and other infrastructure along Third Street in Carnegie, Carothers Avenue in Scott Township and Route 50 in Heidelberg.

U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Upper St. Clair, was one of my elected delegates to attend the Nov. 2 balloon launch in Carnegie to celebrate the beginning of the project.

“On top of improving public safety, these investments will strengthen the ties of our local community by making it an even more inviting area to work and raise a family,” Murphy said in a press release.

Murphy helped secure federal grant month nearly five years ago to help with the project. The three communities received input from residents before working with PennDOT to plan the streetscape design.

The bids for construction on the project will be opened on Nov. 29. The work is expected to continue through most of 2013.

What a waste of money. All the flower pots, lights, and benches in the world won't help Carothers Avenue. To improve that area, they would need to tear everything down and start over.

Like putting a fur coat on a pig....Close down the crummy bars in these communities. The slumlords don't care about these lower income people, who are forced to live in shacks. It is such a blighted and depressed area. You can spend all the money you like, but folks are used to living a certain way...Any lovely bench placed, will disappear and be sold for scrap....Hope there's enough folks to get excited about this and participate in the process.

Born and raised in Glendale, and nothing is going to improve Carothers Ave. I agree with Rose it needs to be ripped down, and get the slum lords out of there.
