At this time, Norfolk Southern’s contractor Gregori Construction estimates the closure will last through the end of June as their work is highly weather dependent.

Railroad Retaining Wall Rehabilitation

Pennwood Avenue Norfolk Southern has contracted Gregori Construction to undertake substantial rehabilitation of the retaining wall supporting the railroad tracks along Pennwood Avenue.  The project encompasses the entire length of the wall in Edgewood and a portion located in Wilkinsburg.  Work is weather dependent but should continue off and on through the remainder of the year.

Pennwood Avenue will remain open during construction but motorists may experience temporary delays due to the movement of equipment and lane closures.  Please obey all posted signs and flaggers while in the construction zone.

Important Change to Recycling

As of January 1, 2021, Republic Services is no longer accepting any glass with curbside Recycling Collection. Glass has the tendency to break during collection and contaminates other recyclables with fine shards of glass.  Any contaminated items are forced to be rejected, and sent to a landfill. To continue recycling glass items, Republic Services has stationed a large blue dumpster in the parking lot behind the Edgewood Borough Building, 2 Race Street, for items to be dropped off at residents' convenience. This bin is located next to the paper collection bins.  

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please only bring your CLEAN glass recyclables, without lids, to place in the bin.
