Portions of Cedar Run Road in Indiana Township will be closed this week for maintenance.
Motorists who travel the road will face closures mainly during daylight hours, township manager Dan Anderson said.
“It would generally be times between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.,” he said.
Cedar Run Road stretches along the northwestern part of the township, off Route 910.
Anderson said the work is part of routine maintenance to prepare the township road for winter.
The township's public works department rented a machine called “The Zipper,” he said.
“It's a milling machine, and the roughest parts of the road will be made back to a gradable state,” he said. “It's to improve the surface condition of the road prior to winter.”
Only portions of the road will be closed at once, so it still will be passable.
Work is expected to last about a week.
Roadwork also is expected to stall traffic along the Highland Park Bridge this week.
PennDOT crews will be inspecting overhead signs for safety.
Short-term lane closures will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Only one direction will be restricted at a time.

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.
