Lane restrictions are scheduled for southbound Parkway North this weekend.

Southbound I-279 will be restricted to a single lane between the Venture Street and the North 28/East Street interchanges starting at 7 p.m. Friday continuously through 6 a.m. on Monday.

Three lanes of traffic will be reduced to two lanes on mainline I-279 in this area.

The southbound High Occupancy Vehicle lane will remain open to traffic.

Additionally, traffic shifts will occur during the weekend work, and a short-term, overnight two lane restriction may occur on mainline I-279.

Camp Horne ramp work

The Camp Horne Road exit ramp from the southbound Parkway North in Ohio Township also will be closed starting tonight for overnight paving operations.

The ramp will be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday, from 7 p.m. on Friday to noon Saturday; and from 7 p.m. Saturday to noon on Sunday.

The following detour will be in place:

• Continue on southbound I-279 past the closed ramp

• Take the Bellevue/West View Exit 7 off ramp

• Turn right onto Union Avenue

• Take the ramp onto northbound I-279 toward Erie

• Follow northbound I-279 to the Camp Horne Road Exit 8

• Take the exit ramp to Camp Horne Road

The work is part of the $87.94 million I-279 Parkway North improvement project that includes concrete patching and overlay, preservation of 30 bridges and 49 overhead sign structures, repairs to 29 walls, ramp repairs, lighting improvements, HOV lane repairs, sign upgrades, guide rail and drainage improvements and installation of an anti-icing system on bridges at the McKnight Road interchange.

Crews from the Trumbull Corp. and Lindy Paving will be performing the work.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
