House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: April 19, 2021 10:21 AM
From: Representative Nick Pisciottano
To: All House members
Subject: Richard D. Olasz Memorial Highway
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to re-name the portion of State Route 2040, also known as Lebanon Church Road, between State Route 885 in West Mifflin Borough and State Route 51 in Pleasant Hills Borough, Allegheny County, as the Richard D. Olasz Memorial Highway.  

On June 14, 1930, Richard D. Olasz was born in Homestead, Allegheny County. From 1951 to 1954, he was a member of the United States Coast Guard and he served during the Korean War. In 1958, he graduated from the University of Pittsburgh. 

From 1972 to 1980, he served on the West Mifflin Borough Council. In November 1980, he was first elected as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for the 38th District, and he would go on to serve for eight more consecutive terms. From 2000 to 2001, he served on the Allegheny County Council. From 2002 until his death, he served once again on the West Mifflin Borough Council. In 2010, Richard D. Olasz passed away at the age of 79. 

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation honoring a man who dedicated his life to public service.
