Lane restrictions starting next week on Ingomar Road in North Park
Improvements to North Park will cause lane closures on Ingomar Road starting next week.
The Allegheny County Department of Public Works announced that work will begin Monday on trail construction and a waterline replacement along Ingomar Road in the park.
More than 500 feet of waterline along Ingomar Road between Kummer Road and Old Ingomar Road will be replaced. Motorists should be aware of lane restrictions under flagging between now and the middle of August, officials said.
The cost of the project is $800,000.
The trail work will cause no traffic restrictions and will be done in conjunction with the Allegheny County Parks Foundation.
About a mile of side trails will be constructed along the North Park Lake trail along Ingomar Road near Babcock Boulevard and the Municipal Row shelters for a project cost of $583,000.
Both projects are being done by Allison Park Contractors, located in Hampton Township.

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 â 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.
