PennDOT to close Route 28 at night through Sunday

| Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, 6:16 p.m.

Route 28 inbound will be closed at the Millvale interchange from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday through Sunday, PennDOT said.

Motorists will be detoured around the closure via Millvale's complicated circular interchange and back onto the highway at the 40th Street Bridge.

PennDOT also said that the ramp from Millvale to Route 28 outbound will be closed during the same overnight hours. Traffic will be detoured via the 40th Street Bridge, Butler Street and the Highland Park Bridge.

PennDOT is spending $3.5 million to make improvements on Route 28 in the area of the Millvale interchange. It is part of a larger $120 million project to remake Route 28 as a four-lane, limited-access highway with no traffic signals between Pittsburgh and Kittanning.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
