Lane closures planned for Parkway North starting Tuesday

| Monday, Dec. 9, 2013, 12:33 p.m.

Lane closures are planned for the Parkway North this week, beginning at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Allegheny Country Department of Public Works officials announced nightly single-lane and shoulder closures this week on the northbound and southbound Parkway North, also known as Interstate 279.

The restrictions will be in place between Exit 5, Perrysville Avenue, and Exit 7, West View, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Tuesday and continuing through Friday, Dec. 13.

Officials advise motorists to use caution and watch for changing traffic patterns.

The lane and shoulder closures are necessary to take down a protective shielding system over I-279 as part of the county's preservation project on the Levi Bird Duff Bridge, which carries Center Street over the Parkway North between Bellevue and Ross Township, officials said.

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.
