New Hulton Bridge and Tree Replacement

The portion of Hulton Road leading up to the new Hulton Bridge is located somewhat differently than the existing road. As a result, it has unfortunately become necessary to replace the row of pin oaks in front of the Riverview Junior Senior High School. This decision was made after meetings with the Oakmont Shade Tree Commission, the Oakmont Boulevard Project, PennDot and PennDOT’s contractor, Brayman Construction. This group agreed that the roots from these trees are actually under the current roadway and would be significantly disturbed by the planned removal of the old roadway and the installation of new underground utility lines.

In addition, the new roadway will be higher than the existing one. The raised grade will result in the roots getting buried outside of the excavated area. It was estimated that the combined excavation and grading work would adversely affect over 50% of the tree roots fronting school property. Even if they managed to survive the initial construction process, they would most likely go into decline and die within a few years.

These trees will be replaced, at no cost to the Borough, with new shade trees approved by the Shade Tree Commission and in keeping with the beautification plans of the Boulevard Project for the Hulton Bridge corridor from the new Bridge to Allegheny River Boulevard.

FIOS IN OAKMONT

– Oakmont residents should be advised that the Borough does not yet have a contract with Verizon to provide FIOS in our town. We have been told repeatedly by Verizon officials that “when they’re ready” they will send us a contract to sign for this service. The Borough of Oakmont is not responsible for our residents not being able to obtain FIOS from Verizon. The Borough of Oakmont has informed Verizon to Cease and Desist from claims that the Borough of Oakmont is preventing them from providing FIOS to its residents.
