Beginning November 6, 2023 PennDOT will be closing West Leechburg Hill Road in order to replace a culvert carrying a stream under the road. This project is being carried out by PennDOT without any involvement from West Leechburg Borough as it is a state road.
Please see the official PennDOT release here for additional information.
If there are any issues with the closure or with winter maintenance along the detour route, please report them to PennDOT here.
County representatives will be walking/driving throughout West Leechburg this week beginning on Monday to collect data for a blight inventory. County representatives will be wearing yellow vests with ID badges and driving either a white car marked with the county seal or a dark blue SUV. They will be working from public roads and rights-of-way and may take pictures of some properties to be used for the inventory. The work in town is expected to take 1 to 2 days.
This project is part of a partnership between West Leechburg Borough, the Westmoreland County Department of Planning and Development, the Westmoreland Redevelopment Authority & Land Bank, the Local Government Academy, East Vandergrift Borough, Vandergrift Borough, Allegheny Township, the City of New Kensington, and the City of Arnold. The aim is to conduct a regional blight inventory and create a mitigation plan
