Lane closures set for Parkway North on Sunday
Bridge inspections will cause lane closures on Interstate 279, also known as the Parkway North, this weekend, weather permitting, PennDOT officials said.
Alternating left- and right-lane closures are scheduled for Sunday on I-279 in both directions between the Perrysville Avenue exit and Bellevue/West View exit.
Inspection activities will occur from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Jacks Run Road and the Bellevue Road bridges over I-279.
Southbound lane closures will occur between 6:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Northbound lane closures will occur from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. At least one lane will remain open in each direction on I-279 at all times.
All ramps and bridges will remain open during the inspection. Crews from HDR Inc, an international engineering firm with offices in Pittsburgh, and the Sofis Co., based in Clinton, will conduct the inspections.

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 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.
