ROAD TO CLOSE

AMWELL - Amity Ridge Road, or Route 19, will be closed between Carey Way and Ten Mile Road, or Route 2020, from May 5 through July 1 so that a bridge can be replaced.

A marked detour will direct motorists to use Interstate 79 and Ten Mile Road.

FUNDRAISING BIKE RIDE SET

AREAWIDE - Steel Valley Trail Council will hold a bike ride Saturday on the Great Allegheny Passage trail to raise money for trail maintenance.

The money raised will be used to maintain the council's part of the Great Allegheny Passage from the scrap yard by Sandcastle to McKeesport, through Homestead, Munhall, Whitaker and Duquesne. The club also promotes a bike route connection that passes through Glassport and Clairton to the Montour Trail.

Registration for the ride will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Pump House in the Waterfront. Riders can take the seven-mile trip to McKeesport, or the 12-mile trip to Clairton and back for a total of 24 miles.

The registration fee is $30. Last year, nearly $15,000 was spent to maintain the council's portion of the trail, according to George Schmidt, trail council president.
