Route 22 traffic delays expected along Monroeville, Murrysville border

| Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, 1:59 p.m.

Drivers along Route 22 near the Monroeville-Murrysville border should expect delays in the evening through at least Friday.

A contractor for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has begun work installing a new drainage pipe along Route 22 westbound at the intersection of Old William Penn Highway.

The contractor, Carmen Paliotta Contracting of Pleasant Hills, began the project earlier this week. Traffic patterns will be adjusted from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. through Friday. The right lane of Route 22 and the turning lane of Old William Penn Highway will be shut down near the intersection.

The Route 22 work is part of a $582,929 project repairing roadways at three slide locations. Work was completed on Trafford-Murrysville Road, just south of the Turnpike Bridge, in Penn Township and Route 993 east of Irwin last month.

PennDOT officials and Murrysville police warn drivers to proceed with caution through the work zone.

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.
