A satellite image shows the part of Saxonburg Road in Harrison that will close March 26 while a slide is repaired. Traffic will be detoured, and the work is expected to be finished by Oct. 9.

A small section of Saxonburg Road in Harrison will close in two weeks when work starts to fix a slide, the township announced Monday.

PennDOT has contracted Gulisek Construction of Mt. Pleasant to do the work, which will require closing Saxonburg Road in the area of Dlubak Lane and north of Dlubak Powder Coatings.

Gulisek has notified the township it will start work on March 26, and expects to have it done on Oct. 9.

In addition to fixing the slide, work will include utility relocation, drainage improvements, pavement, and guardrail.

The road will be completely closed in that area and traffic will be detoured. Local driveway access will be maintained, Gulisek told the township in a letter.

The detour will use Freeport Road and Route 908 (Bakerstown/Millerstown Road).

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.
