The 45th district is an odd longer shape (thanks, gerrymandering) that mostly covers much of the I-79 corridor near Pittsburgh. This includes the boroughs and townships of Ben Avon, Ben Avon Heights, Carnegie, Coraopolis, Emsworth, Kennedy, Kilbuck, Neville, Pennsbury Village, Robinson, Rosslyn Farms, Stowe, and parts of Scott. This district also covers parts of the Avonworth, Carlynton, Chartiers Valley, Cornell, Montour, and Sto-Rox school districts.
