Oakmont Officials Approve Traffic, Parking Trials
Council agreed to temporarily increase parking limits in the business district and prohibit left turns from Advance Way onto Allegheny Avenue.
Motorists in Oakmont Borough might encounter a few changes on roads for the next two months.
On Monday, borough council agreed to implement two 60-day trials—one increasing the parking limits in the business district and the other prohibiting a left turn onto Allegheny Avenue near the Oakmont Bakery.
During the trial, parking within the Allegheny River Boulevard business district will increase from two hours to three hours.
"This is something the merchants have wanted," Councilwoman Laurie Saxon said. "It's been in the works for a while."
Left turns onto Allegheny Avenue from the Adeline Brown/Advance Way intersection also will be prohibited for 60 days.
Signs will be installed at the affected intersection and on the curbing in front of the Oakmont Bakery.
