Streetscape project for Carnegie, Heidelberg and Scott could start in April

| Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, 7:12 p.m.

The Tri-Community Revitalization Project slated for Carnegie, Heidelberg and Scott is expected to begin on Third Street in Carnegie in April, Heidelberg Mayor Ken LaSota said.

From there, the project would wind up Carothers Avenue in Scott before beginning in Heidelberg in July. Work is expected to be completed in November, LaSota said.

The streetscape project calls for the installation of sidewalks, crosswalks, trees, decorative lampposts and other aesthetic and safety improvements in the three communities.

Columbia Gas project

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania recently began a pipeline improvement project in Heidelberg.

The project calls for the replacement of more than 1,600 feet of steel pipe with plastic pipe. It also will relocate the pipeline along Route 50 to allow for the installation of sidewalks for the Tri-Community Revitalization Project.

Work will affect parts of Route 50, as well as Ellsworth Avenue and Third Street. Natural gas service for people in the affected area will be interrupted temporarily while their service is connected to the new gas main, but Columbia will inform customers before that interruption.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of April.

Oktoberfest on tap

The borough's annual Oktoberfest celebration is tentatively scheduled for 1 to 8 p.m. Sept. 28 at Heidelberg Park.

Council Vice President John Duda said the borough is seeking craft and food vendors for the event, which includes live music, German and American food, games and fireworks.

“We're looking for bigger and better than last year,” Duda said.

The borough also released a tentative schedule for other community events in 2013, including Community Cleanup Day (April 20), the Memorial Day Service (10 a.m. on May 27), family nights in Heidelberg Park (June 21 and July 12) and First Night of Lights (Nov. 30).

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.
