Truck traffic on the Pennsylvania Turnpike has fallen since officials began imposing annual toll increases almost four years ago. Some residents are convinced truckers are using Route 30 instead to avoid the tolls.

Work on the Pennsylvania Turnpike will reduce eastbound and westbound traffic each to a single lane beginning Tuesday on a portion of the Findlay Connector (Toll 576) in Allegheny County. The traffic restrictions will be in effect through mid-November between exits 2 (Route 30) and 4 (Westport Road.)

According to the Turnpike Commission, crews will install electronic tolling equipment over the lanes of traffic as the connector is converted to cashless tolling.

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.
