Pittsburgh – PennDOT District 11 is announcing southbound Mifflin Road (Route 885) in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, has reopened to traffic.

Bi-directional traffic on Mifflin Road between Doerrville Avenue and Lebanon Road has been restored.  Crews completed sewer line installation work this morning.  The work was finished nearly one month ahead of schedule.
