PennDOT announced utility relocation work is scheduled for Route 286 through Monroeville and Plum beginning Monday, weather permitting.

Single lane, alternating traffic will occur as needed from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays on Route 286 between Route 22 (William Penn Highway) and Sagamore Hill Road as crews from Peoples Natural Gas relocate a gas line. Relocation work is scheduled to continue through late September, PennDOT officials said.

The relocation work is part of the Route 286 road widening project scheduled to begin in the spring, officials said.

Flaggers will control traffic through the work zone.

Officials said motorists should use caution when driving through the area.

Also, motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting www.511PA.com.

Also, 511PA is available by calling 511, and alerts can be found on Twitter at @511PAStatewide.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
