Two PennDOT projects will limit traffic on two streets in the South Hills soon.

Work to install curb cut ramps on Weyman Road near Provost Road in Whitehall will begin April 24, a PennDOT spokesman said Friday.

The work will occur weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through May 12, PennDOT spokesman Steve Cowan said.

A single-lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction during work hours. No restrictions will occur during non-working hours.

Crews from M&B Services LLC will conduct the work.

PennDOT also plans to conduct geotechnical drilling and research on Streets Run Road in Baldwin Borough.

Lane restrictions on Streets Run Road will occur April 24-28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Missionary Drive and Springdale Drive.

Crews from Armstrong Drilling will conduct test bore drillings for a future project. Flaggers will assist motorists through the work zone.

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.
