Emsworth Borough Council meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Borough Hall, 171 Center Avenue.
West View Authority is scheduled to complete their transfers by October 8. T.A. Robinson will then begin their part of the project. No parking on North and Orchard Avenues during this phase will begin shortly to install catch basins, curbing, the sub-base, base and final paving. Emsworth Council appreciates the patience of residents who must traverse these roads daily as well as finding alternate parking as this project moves forward.
Locust Street is one way to SR 65
Motorists looking to circumvent North Avenue during the reconstruction of North Avenue will need to traverse Glenn Street, to the Center Avenue Bridge and then turn left onto Center Avenue. Motorists are reminded not to turn left on to Locust Street from any side street and drive the wrong way on the one-way state-maintained road!!
Mid-Term Voting will take place at Sacred Heart Church, located between North and Orchard Avenues.
Due to the reconstruction of North Avenue, all vehicle traffic must use Orchard Avenue to the Sacred Heart Parking Lot. Orchard is one way from Center Avenue to SR 65. Vehicular traffic will exit Orchard Avenue; all traffic turns right onto SR 65, Ohio River Boulevard.
