Work to improve Duncan Avenue and a sliver of Ferguson Road, also known as Route 4024,in McCandless will begin Monday, weather permitting, PennDOT officials have announced.
Work includes milling and resurfacing the roadway and shoulders, base repairs, drainage and guide-rail upgrades, pavement markings and other minor improvements. Overall work will conclude in August.
To allow the necessary work to occur, traffic will be restricted to a single alternating lane between Babcock Boulevard and Thompson Run Road weeknights from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Flag crews will assist traffic moving through the work areas. Periodic stops should be expected. In addition, police will be posted to control traffic at the Peebles Road, Babcock Boulevard and Thompson Run Road intersections.
The project is included in a $2.5 million contract with The Lane Construction Co. of Pittsburgh for improvements on several roadways in Allegheny County.
PennDOT officials urge motorist to use caution, slow down and allow extra time when traveling through the area.

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.
